i didn't understand any of that.

then you really need to review your material, or ask more probing questions

what exactly is row rank?

make sure each equation HAS the same variables; whatevers missing put a 0 to it so that it is included 3x 1y+3z+0w=5 1x+2y+2z3w=1 2x+5y+4z+2w=10 strip off everything thats NOT a number 3 1 3 0 5 1 2 2 3 1 2 5 4 2 10 now this is a coeff matrix that you can augment

if we format this for the wolf, life gets a bit easier :) rref{{3, 1, 3, 0, 5},{1, 2, 2, 3, 1},{2, 5, 4, 2, 10}}

ok i got that. what's next?

there are 3 nonzero rows; so row rank = 3 the last column of the augmented matrix is a constant vector the next to last is the a free variable column

amistre64Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
our parametric is based on these last 2 columns in this case; our constant vector and our free vectors

\[\vec x=\begin{pmatrix}x\\y\\z\\w \end{pmatrix}=\begin{pmatrix}109/3\\12\\92/3\\0\end{pmatrix}+w\begin{pmatrix}73/3\\8\\65/3\\1 \end{pmatrix}\]

in this typa of questions, i was taught to suppose an arbitary constant and then calculate values of x,y,z,w for a particular value of arbitary constant.

amistre64Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
yes, in this case the free variable is what you are calling an arbitrary constant

the augmented matrix produces our vectors for us; by augmenting with the "=" column vector to begin with we produce a particular value vector; and all thos coumns that dont stand on a "1" are called free variables ... arbitrary constants

it means that the rest of it can be defined using just those column vectors
