How do you know if a matrix is inconsistent or consistent?
Simply so, what does it mean for a matrix to be inconsistent?
Definition 1.5. 2 A system of linear equations is called inconsistent if it has no solutions. A system which has a solution is called consistent. If a system is inconsistent, a REF obtained from its augmented matrix will include a row of.
In this manner, what does infinitely many solutions look like?
The first is when we have what is called infinite solutions. This happens when all numbers are solutions. This situation means that there is no one solution. The equation 2x + 3 = x + x + 3 is an example of an equation that has an infinite number of solutions.
A matrix is in reduced row-echelon form when all of the conditions of row-echelon form are met and all elements above, as well as below, the leading ones are zero. If there is a row of all zeros, then it is at the bottom of the matrix. All elements above and below a leading one are zero.
