Aptitude | GATE CS 1998 | Question 2
Consider the following set of equations
x+2y = 5
4x+8y = 12
3x+6y+3z = 15
(A) has a unique solution
(B) has no solutions
(C) has finite number of solutions
(D) has infinite number of solutions
Explanation: When the given set of equations are represented in matrix form, the coefficient matrix A is singular. Since the determinant value of A is 0, the system of equations is inconsistent.
