hey guys(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

given [itex]Ax=B[/itex] where A is a square matrix and x and B are vectors, can anyone tell me why a singular matrix (that is, the determinant = 0) implies one of two situations: infinite solutions or zero solutions? a proof would be nice. i read through pauls notes but there was no proof.

thanks all!
