- A Condition that a Linear System has Nontrivial Solutions For what value(s) of $a$ does the system have nontrivial solutions? \begin{align*} &x_1+2x_2+x_3=0\\ &-x_1-x_2+x_3=0\\ & 3x_1+4x_2+ax_3=0. \end{align*} Solution. First note that the system is homogeneous and hence it is consistent. Thus if the system has a nontrivial […]
