Hello, al1850!

No one is responding because we can't read the problem.

Obviously, there's a typo . . . and it still doesn't make sense.

.**??**

I would guess that the "coefficients": belong to (somehow).

But is a**constant**.

. . It can__not__equal a matrix:

Please state the original problem . . . carefully.

Hi,

Maybe this is the same as here : http://www.mathhelpforum.com/math-he...-question.html - Mar 16th 2008, 11:43 AMal1850
That's exactly how it is asked in a Maths assignment.

I used r.e.f work out that a1=3√2/2 , a2=√2/2 , a3=1

Not sure if thats the coefficients.
