# In Exercises 1-6, find three different particular solutions of the given equation and also its general solution in two forms (if possible): parameterized by x and parameterized by y.[HINT: See Example 1 and Quick Examples 2-4] x + 3 y = 3

To determine

To calculate: The general solution in two forms: parameterized by x and parameterized by y

and also three different particular solutions of the equation x+3y=3.

Explanation

Given Information:

The provided equation is x+3y=3.

Formula used:

For any real numbers a, b, and c, the general solution of a linear equation of the form ax+by=c, when parameterized by x has the form (x,cāaxb) and, when parameterized by y has the form (cābya,y).

For any real numbers a, b, and c, the particular solution of a linear equation of the form ax+by=c is obtained by selecting specific values for x and y which satisfies the equation.

Calculation:

Consider the provided equation,

x+3y=3

To find the general solution of the equation when parameterized by x, express y as a function of x.

x+3y=33y=3āxy=3āx3

Substitute this expression of y in the solution (x,y). Hence the general solution of the equation x+3y=3 when parameterized by x is (x,3āx3).

To find the general solution of the equation when parameterized by y, express x as a function of y.

x+3y=3x=3ā3y

Substitute this expression of x in the solution (x,y). Hence the general solution of the equation x+3y=3 when parameterized by y is (3ā3y,y).

Recall that the particular solution of a linear equation is obtained by selecting specific values for x and y which satisfies the equation x+3y=3
