Homogenous system - Nontrivial solutions

  1. Sep 24, 2009 #1
    For which values of 'a' does the homogeneous system

    ax1 + x2 - x3 = 0
    x1 - x2 + 2x3 = 0
    2x1 + 3x2 + x3 = 0

    have a nontrivial solution? Find all the nontrivial solutions.

    Per the PF Rules link at the top of the page, you must show your work and an attempt at the solution. We do not help you cheat on your math homework.
