Homework Help: Solving systems of linear equations

  1. Jan 30, 2014 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    x + 3y + z = 4
    2x + 2y + z = -1
    2x + 3y + z = 3

    Find the general solution, and two particular solutions.

    3. The attempt at a solution
    y = 4; x = -1; z = -7; if I am not mistaken. So how am I supposed to find a general and two particular solutions if there is only one solution?

    You can't. There is only one solution. Must be an error in the problem statement.

    yeah there is only one unique solution.
