For this,

I am not sure what the '2nd and 5th the variables' are. Dose someone please know whether the free variables ##2, 0, 0## from the second column and ##5, 8, \pi##? Or are there only allowed to be one free variable for each column so ##2## and ##5## for the respective columns.

Also for,

Why can b and d be free so are parametric and take on any value in the domain of real numbers? Could a be written as ##a(b,d) = 3b - 7d + 11 b,d ∈ ℝ## in other words a is leading so can take on any value since it is a function of b and d?
