what is 2. at end? a square?

what is 3. at end? (i dont think u can solve this w/ algebra; have to use numeric approx)

pick numbers for x,y,z. use what they gave you to get values.

e.g. 3x+2y+4z=3*2+2*0+4*2.5 = 6+0+10 = 16 so eqn is 3x+2y+4z=16

now do two more to get system

Let a³x²+b²x+c=0. What values are a,b,c if a < b and c = 4a

put 4a in for c: a^3x^2+b^2x+4a=0

do quad fiormula for x in terms of a&b

do cases. e.g. if x=0 then what? (a=0 and b>0 so infinite sol'n set)

try other cases
