Next, we focus on the x2 coefficients. Since our goal is to reach echelon form, we do not care about the coefficient on x2 in the top equation, so we concentrate on the second and third equations. Holt-4100161 16 CHAPTER 1 la October 1, 2012 9:37 16 Systems of Linear Equations • Add a multiple of one equation to another (focus on x2 ). Here we need to transform a32 to 0. Since (−1) · 1 + 1 = 0, we multiply −1 times the second equation and add the result to the third equation. Using only the second and third equations avoids reintroducing x1 into the third equation.

Every linear system with free variables has infinitely many solutions. 49. Any linear system with more variables than equations cannot have a unique solution. 50. If a linear system has the same number of equations and variables, then it must have a unique solution. 51.
