The value of k for which the system of equations x + 2y − 3 = 0


The value of $k$ for which the system of equations $x+2 y-3=0$ and $5 x+k y+7=0$ has no solution, is

(a) 10

(b) 6

(c) 3

(d) 1


The given system of equations are

$x+2 y-3=0$


$5 x+k y+7=0$

For the equations to have no solutions,

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


If we take




Therefore the value of k is10.

Hence, correct choice is $a$.
