- Homework Statement:
- determine if the system is consistent. If the system is consistent, determine if the solution is unique

- Relevant Equations:
- none

My guess is that since there are no rows in a form of [0000b], the system is consistent (the system has a solution).

As the first column is all 0s, x1 would be a free variable.

Because the system with free variable have infinite solution, the solution is not unique.

In this way, the matrix is consistent, and has no unique solutions.

Would this be a correct answer, and is the explanation suitable?

Thank you!
