(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Every underdetermined system of linear equations has infinitely many solutions. (True/False)

2. Relevant equations

N/A

3. The attempt at a solution

Every source I have found, including several textbooks, say that underdetermined systems "often" or "usually" have an infinite number of solutions, so I'm assuming the answer is false, but I can't think of an example that shows an underdetermined system that does not have infinitely many solutions.

Any ideas?
