Hi all, I don't know how to solve this:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

The vectoruhas the coordinates[itex]( u_1, u_2, u_3 ) [/itex]to the base[itex] a = { ( 1,0,0), (1,1,0), (1,1,1) }[/itex]and it has the coordinates[itex]( u^{'}_{1}, u^{'}_{2}, u^{'}_{3} ) [/itex]to the baseb. We also know:

[tex]

u_1 = 2u^{'}_1 - u^{'}_2 + u^{'}_3

[/tex]

[tex]

u_2 = u^{'}_1 + 3u^{'}_2 - u^{'}_3

[/tex]

[tex]

u_3 = u^{'}_1 + u^{'}_2 - 4u^{'}_3

[/itex]

Find out the baseb!

I have no idea how to solve it...I tried it but I couldn't find a way without adding unknown variables to the equations.

Could someone help please?
