Determine whether or not the three vectors listed above are linearly independent or linearly dependent.

I have determined that they are linearly DEPENDENT.

If they are linearly dependent, determine a non-trivial linear relation - (a non-trivial relation is three numbers which are not all three zero.) otherwise, if the vectors are linearly independent, enter 0's for the coefficients, since that relationship always holds.

2. Relevant equations

none, sorry

3. The attempt at a solution

I have put the vectors into a matrix and solved it... but then I got something strange, and everytime I do it... I always get different answers. I have determined that they are linearly dependent though.
