Given two systems, Ax=b and Cy=d, for nxn matrices A and C, and n-dimensional vectors b and d, each of which has at least one solution, it is know that one solution is common to both (satisfies both equations). Could such solution be z found by solving Az+Cz=b+d? I understand that a common solution would satisfy the third system, but I wonder if the third system has more solutions, and we obtain one that is not common for the first and the second system.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
