6. $150,000 at 7%,$750,000 at 8%, $600,000 at 10% ## Solutions to Odd-Numbered Exercises 1. Yes. For each row, the coefficients of the variables are written across the corresponding row, and a vertical bar is placed; then the constants are placed to the right of the vertical bar. 3. No, there are numerous correct methods of using row operations on a matrix. Two possible ways are the following: (1) Interchange rows 1 and 2. Then ${R}_{2}={R}_{2}-9{R}_{1}$. (2) ${R}_{2}={R}_{1}-9{R}_{2}$. Then divide row 1 by 9. 5. No. A matrix with 0 entries for an entire row would have either zero or infinitely many solutions. 7. $\left[\begin{array}{rrrr}\hfill 0& \hfill & \hfill 16& \hfill \\ \hfill 9& \hfill & \hfill -1& \hfill \end{array}|\begin{array}{rr}\hfill & \hfill 4\\ \hfill & \hfill 2\end{array}\right]$ 9. $\left[\begin{array}{rrrrrr}\hfill 1& \hfill & \hfill 5& \hfill & \hfill 8& \hfill \\ \hfill 12& \hfill & \hfill 3& \hfill & \hfill 0& \hfill \\ \hfill 3& \hfill & \hfill 4& \hfill & \hfill 9& \hfill \end{array}|\begin{array}{rr}\hfill & \hfill 16\\ \hfill & \hfill 4\\ \hfill & \hfill -7\end{array}\right]$ 11. $\begin{array}{l}-2x+5y=5\\ 6x - 18y=26\end{array}$ 13. $\begin{array}{l}3x+2y=13\\ -x - 9y+4z=53\\ 8x+5y+7z=80\end{array}$ 15. $\begin{array}{l}4x+5y - 2z=12\hfill \\ \text{ }y+58z=2\hfill \\ 8x+7y - 3z=-5\hfill \end{array}$ 17.
