Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0trivial solution is when the solution vector is the zero vector as it satisfies every matrix equation

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0for example of u are finding the nullspace of a matrix the zero vector is in the nullspace of every matrix so it is a trivial solution

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0for an exmple i got 2 solution a=0, b=0 that means its trivial..? how about matrix independent and matrix dependent...? thx for helping

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0surely that is nontrivial? or do they mean the vectors which span the nullspace thus giving zero upon multiplication

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0that is the question..im using C1V1+C2V2=0 formula i get C1=0 and C2=0

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0c1=0 asnd c2 =0 is the trivial solution alright any nonzero values for the c's will be nontrivial

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if the 2 vectors are linearly independent there will only be the trivial solution and they are as the matrix they form is row equivalent to the identity matrix
