Homework Help: Parametric Vector Form

  1. Feb 1, 2010 #1
    The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    Describe the solution(s) of the system Ax=b in parametric vector form where A =
    [tex]0....-2....9....5[/tex]
    [tex]0....1....2....-6[/tex]

    and b =
    [tex]0[/tex]
    [tex]0[/tex]

    The attempt at a solution
    I got this far:

    [tex]1....0....13....7....0[/tex]
    [tex]0....1....2....-6....0[/tex]

    How do I continue to get it into parametric vector form? I only have two leading ones, so does it look like I'll be getting some free variables?
