Q. 4

For what value of k will the following pair of linear equations have no solution?2x + 3y = 9, 6x + (k – 2) y = (3k – 2) .

There are two equations given in the question:

2x + 3y – 9 = 0 (i)

And, 6x + (k – 2)y – (3k – 2) = 0 (ii)

These given equations are in the form a1x + b1y + c1 = 0 and a2x + b2y + c2 = 0 where,

a1 = 2, b1 = 3 and c1 = – 9

Also, a2 = 6, b2 = (k – 2) and c2 = – (3k – 2)

Now, for the given pair of linear equations having no solution we must have:

,

k = 11,

k = 11, 3 (3k – 2) 9 (k – 2)

k = 11 and 1 3 (True)

Hence, the value of k is 11
