Question 1 of 1
1. Question
If a homogeneous system of linear equations has a nontrivial solution, then the system has infinitely many solutions.
Correct
Way to go! The possibility of the number of solutions of any system of linear equations are zero, one, or infinity.
Since a homogeneous system has the zero solution, if it has nontrivial solutions, it has two solutions. Hence there should be infinitely many solutions.Incorrect
Review the following fact: the possibility of the number of solutions of any system of linear equations are zero, one, or infinity.
Since a homogeneous system has the zero solution, if it has nontrivial solutions, it has two solutions. Hence there should be infinitely many solutions.
