We can use Gaussian elimination on systems with three or more variables to determine how many solutions such systems have. In the case of systems with no solution or infinitely many solutions, it is impossible to rewrite the augmented matrix in the desired form with is down the main diagonal from upper left to lower right, and Os below the ls. The system has no solution if one of the rows in the row-echelon form is a false statement, ie. 0X+0y+Oz=5. The system has inﬁnitely many solutions if the three planes intersect in more than one point. This is when all but one variable can be written in terms of the one variable. In a nonsquare system, the number of variables differs from the number of equations, ie. two equations and three variables. Notice how the solution is expressed in terms of one variable. Use Gaussian elimination to find the complete solution to each system of equations, or show that none exists. 4x—2y—Z=—3 1. 7x—3y—2z=—l2 —6x+2y+2z=10 0 9 l r! 0 O 0 i L 0 0 0 -—l “'2. 0 ...
