1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Determine the values of h such that the matrix is the augmented matrix of a consistent linear system. [1 h -5] [2 -8 6] 2. Relevant equations None that I know of. 3. The attempt at a solution Multiplied row (1) by -2: [-2 -2h 10 ] [ 2 -8 6 ] and added together to get: -2h -8 = 16 and of course you can solve that for -2h=24 and h = -12. So is it correct to say H can be any value other than -12 in order to make the system consistent? Please let me know if its correct. If not, please tell me what I need to do to get the correct answer. Thanks!
