# If the pair of equations 2x + 3y = 7; (a + b)x + (2a – b)y = 21 has infinitely many solutions then find the values of a, b.

Answer :

Given, 2x + 3y = 7; (a + b)x + (2a – b)y = 21

We know that a pair of linear equations has infinitely many solutions

when,

Here, a_{1} = 2, b_{1} = 3, c_{1} = 7

and a_{2} = (a + b), b_{2} = (2a – b), c_{2} = 21

A + b = 6 …(i)

2a – b = 9 …(ii)

Adding both the equations we get,

3a = 15

∴a = 5

∴b = 6 – 5

b = 1

Rate this question :

(i) 2x – 3y = 8; 4x – 6y = 9

(ii) 3x – y = 2; 6x – 2y = 4

(iii) 2x – 2y = 2; 4x – 4y = 5

(iv)
