The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Find the general solution to the system: [tex]ax+ by= 1[/tex] [tex]cx+ dy= 2[/tex] Consider the case when [tex]ad- bc \neq 0[/tex] The attempt at a solution Like in my other post, I multiplied the first equation by "c" and the second equation by "a", and then I subtracted the two equations. I just seem to be stuck. I got the following matrix: [tex]0.....ad- bc.....2a- c[/tex] [tex]ac.....ad.....2a[/tex] Therefore, [tex](ad- bc)y= 2a- c[/tex] But what relation can I deduce from this equation to help my determine a general solution for the system? The previous question I posted was much more obvious, where I was able to solve y= 0. But this isn't the case. I appreciate any help.
