We are given two vectors [tex]\vec{a}[/tex] i [tex]\vec{b}[/tex]. We know that(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

[tex]2\vec{a}-3\vec{b}=\begin{bmatrix}0\\-17\end{bmatrix}[/tex]

[tex]\vec{a}+4\vec{b}=\begin{bmatrix}11\\19\end{bmatrix}[/tex]

I have tried to solve this through a set of equations with two unknown, but don't really know how to do that:

[tex]\begin{cases}2a-3b=[0,-17]\\a+4b=[11,19]\end{cases}[/tex]

Thank you in advance for any clues:)
