and = = = r2 , say
3 k 2 integers. Then which one of the following is true?
∴ x = 3r2 + 2, y = kr2 + 3, z = 2r2 + 1 (1) If det A = ± 1, then A–1 exists and all its entries
If they intersec each other now are integers
kr1 + 1 = 3r2 + 2 ⇒ kr1 – 3r2 = 1 ...(1) (2) If det A = ± 1, then A–1 need not exist
2r1 + 2 = kr2 + 3 ⇒ 2r1 – kr2 = 1 ...(2) (3) If det A = ± 1, then A–1 exists but all its entries
are not necessarily integers
3r1 + 3 = 2r2 + 1 ⇒ 3r1 – 2r2 =–2 ...(3)
