Solve the system, if possible. (If the system is inconsistent, enter INCONSISTENT. If the system is dependent, enter DEPENDENT.)

2a + 3b − 2c = 12
5a − 6b + c = 21
4b − 2c − 2 = 0

Expert Answer

Step 1

The system of equations is given by, 2a+3b–2c=12, 5a–6b+c=21 and 4b–2c–2=0.

Step 2

Multiply the second row by 5 and then subtract with second row, in order to form the new row 2 as follows.

Step 3

Apply the row operati...
