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

Vectors

u=(-2, 9, 6)

v=(-3, 2, 1)

w=(1, 7, 5)

2. Relevant equations

Show that there is no scalar (Cn) such that:

C1(u) + C2(v) + C3(w) = (0, 5, 4)

I'd also like to know where would I start to find all the scalars if there were any, since I'm pretty sure this problem will come eventually, and there's nothing in the textbook about it!

Thanks
