Question:

Find the value of k for which each of the following system of equations have no solution :

$x+2 y=0$

 

$2 x+k y=5$

Solution:

GIVEN:

$x+2 y=0$

 

$2 x+k y=5$

To find: To determine for what value of k the system of equation has no solution 

We know that the system of equations

$a_{1} x+b_{1} y=c_{1}$

 

$a_{2} x+b_{2} y=c_{2}$

For no solution

$\frac{a_{1}}{a_{2}}=\frac{b_{1}}{b_{2}} \neq \frac{c_{1}}{c_{2}}$

 

Here,

$\frac{1}{2}=\frac{2}{k} \neq \frac{0}{5}$

$\frac{1}{2}=\frac{2}{k}$

$k=4$

Hence for $k=4$ the system of equation has no solution
