Figure 1.1: for Problem 1.1.11.
This system has innitely many solutions: If we choose y = t, an arbitrary real number,
then the equation x 2y = 3 gives us x = 3 +2y = 3 +2t. Therefore the general solution
is (x, y) = (3 + 2t, t), where t is an arbitrary real number. (See Figure 1.2.)

14. The system reduces to

x + 5z = 0
y z = 0
0 = 1

, so that there is no solution; no point in space

belongs to all three planes.
Compare with Figure 2b.
15. The system reduces to

x = 0
y = 0
z = 0

so the unique solution is (x, y, z) = (0, 0, 0). The three

planes intersect at the origin.
16. The system reduces to

x + 5z = 0
y z = 0
0 = 0

, so the solutions are of the form (x, y, z) =

(5t, t, t), where t is an arbitrary number. The three planes intersect in a line; com-
pare with Figure 2a.

1
for product 1 increases with the increase of price P
2
; likewise
the demand D
2
for product 2 increases with the increase of price P

. This indicates
that the two products are competing; some people will switch if one of the products
gets more expensive.

20. The total demand for the product of Industry A is 1000 (the consumer demand) plus 0.1b
(the demand from Industry B). The output a must meet this demand: a = 1000 + 0.1b.
Setting up a similar equation for Industry B we obtain the system

a = 1000 + 0.1b
b = 780 + 0.2a

or

a 0.1b = 1000
0.2a + b = 780

, which yields the unique solution a = 1100 and b = 1000.

21. The total demand for the products of Industry A is 310 (the consumer demand) plus 0.3b
(the demand from Industry B). The output a must meet this demand: a = 310 + 0.3b.
Setting up a similar equation for Industry B we obtain the system

a = 310 + 0.3b
b = 100 + 0.5a

or

a 0.3b = 310
0.5a + b = 100

, which yields the solution a = 400 and b = 300.

22. Since x(t) = a sin(t) + b cos(t) we can compute
dx

= a cos(t) b sin(t) and
d

x

= a sin(t)b cos(t). Substituting these expressions into the equation
d

x
dt

dx
dt
x = cos(t)
and simplifying gives (b2a) sin(t)+(a2b) cos(t) = cos(t). Comparing the coecients
of sin(t) and cos(t) on both sides of the equation then yields the system

2a + b = 0
a 2b = 1

,
so that a =

and b =

then the speed of the boat relative to the land is v + s downstream and v s upstream.

y 2z = 3
0 = k 7

.
a. The system has solutions if k 7 = 0, or k = 7.
b. If k = 7 then the system has innitely many solutions.
c. If k = 7 then we can choose z = t freely and obtain the solutions
(x, y, z) = (1 t, 3 + 2t, t).
26. The system reduces to

x 3z = 1
y + 2z = 1
(k

4)z = k 2

This system has a unique solution if k

2
4 = 0, that is, if k = 2.
If k = 2, then the last equation is 0 = 0, and there will be innitely many solutions.
If k = 2, then the last equation is 0 = 4, and there will be no solutions.
27. Let x = the number of male children and y = the number of female children.

29. To assure that the graph goes through the point (1, 1), we substitute t = 1 and f(t) = 1
into the equation f(t) = a + bt + ct

to give 1 = a + b + c.
Proceeding likewise for the two other points, we obtain the system

a + b + c = 1
a + 2b + 4c = 3
a + 3b + 9c = 13

.
The solution is a = 1, b = 5, and c = 3, and the polynomial is f(t) = 1 5t +3t

The unique solution is

a = 3p 3q + r
b = 2.5p + 4q 1.5r
c = 0.5p q + 0.5r
