    What have you tried so far?. For example: do you know what linear combination means?.

    its hard for me to show in this text, but basically i formed the augmented matrix and then tried achieving echelon row form in order to solve for a, b and c ... looking for any parameters etc...

    A linear combination is like a line of combination with scalars multiplied by vectors??
