    inconsistent solution means no solution so the condition is a1/a2 = b1/b2 and not equal to c1/c2 so wrt that condition 3a not equal to a in all condition except 0 so R-{0}

    it is the set of all those values of a to which the system of equation has no solution.. that mean no x and y exist which can satisfy both the eqns simultaneously
