Existence and Uniqueness of Solutions and Pivot Structure. Determine the values of h and k so that,

[1 3 | 2]

[3 h | k]

(the above is meant to be 1 augmented matrix)

(1) Is consistent (has a solution).

(2) Is consistent with a unique solution.

(3) Is inconsistent.

2. Relevant equations

Row reduction?

3. The attempt at a solution

I have no idea where to even begin, I haven't learned anything during class and I can't find any help in the book. If someone could help me get started or preferably tell me the steps of how i would go about doing this I can try it out and post my work here. Thank you
