1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data An n-tuple C has two representation in terms of the linearly independent pair A,B C = (x-3)A - YB C = -yA - (x+2)B Solve for x and y. 2. Relevant equations aA+bB+cC = 0 where A,B,C are linearly dependent n-tuples and a,b,c are real numbers that don't all equal 0 3. The attempt at a solution I tried this problem about a billion different ways; however, none yielded promising results. I know the answer, and it is numerical! I don't want x and y in terms of A and B; they have numerical values. It would be helpful to explain what you're doing as you do it, but I can probably figure it out if you just show the work; laziness is something that I understand well.
