Consider the matrix Find a left-inverse of C. Attempt: I know that you suppose to somehow use gauss reduction, and thought about gauss reducing: and but didnt get any luck

Only square matrices have inverses. To solve a matrix equation of the form for where is not square, you need to premultiply both sides by first. . Now is a square matrix, so you can premultiply both sides by . .

You have 6 variables and 4 equations. This system has very many solutions. To limit number of solutions two variables may be given some values. Let z1=0 and z2=0 then your matrix is
