Hopefully someone can help me out with this one. I was in a conversation and the topic came up on what can an can not be inconsistent.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Assume that A, x, and 0 are all of the corrent order for Ax=0. According to everything I have learned, Ax=b if b=0 then it is always consistent. Does anyone know when your are solving a system of linear equations if there is every a case when b=0 and sill be inconsistent?

Your help is much appreciated. :surprised
