I'm having trouble with Ax=b matrices. I get really confused when dealing with matrices that have a different number of rows from columns. An example is this problem:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

(A is a 3x2 matrix)

A =

3 1

4 2

-5 -1

(b is a 3x1 matrix)

b =

1

0

-3

I need to find the solution set for x. Aren't there only 2 variables?

Thanks.
