For a homogeneous system of 3 equations in 3 unknowns (geometrically(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

this is 3 planes in space all containing the origin) describe the relationship between

the (three) geometric possibilities for the solution set and the number of free variables (non

pivots) in RREF(A) where A is the coefficient matrix.

I understand what RREF stands for. However, I don't understand how to approach the question or what it is asking
