GATE | GATE-CS-2005 | Question 48

Consider the following system of equations in three real variables xl, x2 and x3
2×1 – x2 + 3×3 = 1
3×1- 2×2 + 5×3 = 2
-x1 + 4×2 + x3 = 3
This system of equations has

(A) no solution
(B) a unique solution
(C) more than one but a finite number of solutions
(D) an infinite number of solutions


Answer: (B)
