In a vector space, given 3 vectors a,b,c I want to find all solutions of \left\langle x,a \right\rangle c = b.

So far this is my approach, I am just a little hestiant to say I have found all solutions:

If we assume a, b, and c \neq 0. Then \left\langle x,a \right\rangle c = b \implies |\left\langle c,b \right\rangle| = ||c|| \cdot ||b|| because we know equality of Cauchy- Schwarz holds iff one vector is a scalar multiple of the other.


\frac{|\left\langle c,b \right\rangle|}{||c||^2} = |\left\langle x,a \right\rangle|

Using this fact I know x = \frac{|\left\langle c,b \right\rangle| b}{\left\langle b,a \right\rangle \left\langle c,c \right\rangle} is a solution.

The cases when a,b or c is 0 are less interesting I think. What do you think?
