matrix elimination
1 Attachment(s)
What do you guys suggest to solve this question,please?

if elimination fails then the matrix has no inverse and thus it's determinant is 0.

solve the resulting quadratic for it's two roots

By inspection (using Romsek's idea) I'd say that zero and 3 are the numbers you are looking for.
