# Suppose you have used Gaussian elimination to transform the augmented matrix of a linear system into row-echelon form. How can you tell whether the system has exactly one solution? no solution? infinitely many solutions?

To determine

To explain:

Whether the system has exactly one solution, no solution, infinitely many solutions.

Explanation

Assume the Gaussian elimination method is used to transform the augmented matrix of a linear system into row-echelon form. The system has following solutions:

No solution, if the row-echelon from contains a row that represents the equation 0=c, where c is not zero
