    Definition consistency of 3 variable linear systems

    Hey just after a definition for the above.

    I'm trying to figure out if a system has to have a unique solution to be consistent or if solving for 2 variables in terms of a third is also included.

    A consistent system has at least one solution, period. It could have many solutions, but that's ok.

    Cool got it. My notes weren't really clear on that but that's perfect.
