An augmented matrix scaled by a number also means the solutions set is scaled by that same number. I believe this is true due to it basically being the same as elementary row operations preformed on each row. Unless it is a zero scalar in which case you lose all conditions. Is my method of thinking about this correct? Its not homework but I think it would help me understand a concept.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
