I reduced this and got this matrix:
[1 -2 2 -3 0
0 0 1 2 0
0 0 1 2 0
0 0 0 0 0]
The two identical equations would just reduce to one equation so I am left with 4 unkowns and two equations. I know you can describe the solutions parametrically using s & t but is that what I would do in this situation?
Any help would be appreciated. Thank You
