    Question reduced augmented

    The following matrix is a reduced augmented matrix obtained from a system of equations.
    1 0 0 3 / 6
    0 1 0 5 / 4
    0 0 0 0 / -2
    0 0 0 0 / 0
    My answer is infinite based on the non-numbers in the matrix, thanks for looking this one over.

    Since the equation equivalent to the third line of this matrix is:

    0.w+0.x+0.y+0.z=-2

    the system is inconsistent, and cannot have any solutions.
