Find the ordered triple (p,q,r) that satisfies the following system:

p - 2q = 3

q - 2r = -2 + q

p + r = 9 + p

Find the ordered triple (p,q,r) that satisfies the following system:  

p - 2q = 3  

q - 2r = -2 + q  

p + r = 9 + p  

 

 

Let's number those equations, for referencing only:  

 

(1)   p – 2q  =  3   

(2)   q – 2r  =  –2 + q   

(3)   p + r  =  9 + p   

 

Per equation (2), r = 1   

Per equation (3), r = 9    

 

You can't have both at the same time.  The system has no solution.
