If I want to know how many solutions a consistent linear system with more equations than unknowns has, how do I tell? Obviously there is either 1 solution of infinite solutions. Can you have a free variable in this case? I'm confused how to find out whether a system will give a unique solution.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
