Matrices and Solutions

Matrices are the most common and effective way to solve systems of linear equations. However, not all systems of linear equations have unique solutions. Before spending time trying to solve a system, it is important to establish whether it in fact has a unique solution. Provide an example of a matrix that has no solution. Use

Matrices with no solutions and infinite solutions

Provide an example of a matrix that has no solution. Use row operations to show why it has no unique solution. Also, some matrices have more than one solution (in fact, an infinite number of solutions) because the system is undetermined.
