thanks !! :)

i made a dumb mistake :( thank you for clearing everything up!!

yay!! :))

also correct me if i am wrong.

\(2/5a+6 \begin{bmatrix} 3&\\ -2& \\7& \end{bmatrix} = \begin{bmatrix} 15& \\ -10 & \\35 \end{bmatrix}\) we realize that the each element in the matrix was multiplied by 5 so a must be a value that will make 2/5a+6= 5 therefore a must be a negative reciprocal of 2/5 thus we will get -5/2 because that gives us -1 and when you add -1+6=5 which satisifes the equation. hope this helped. :)

oh my god is that why i kept getting the wrong answer,,, thank you for pointing my mistake out!! :)
