A linear system with m equations and n variables is the following set:
a1x1 + a2x2 + ... + anxn = b1
m a1x1 + a2x2 + ... + anxn = b2
a1x1 + a2x2 + ... + anxn = bm
A solution is a vector (t1,t2,...,tn) є Rn that satisfies all the equations.
If the set of solutions is S = Ø then we say that the system is inconsistent.
Note that the above system can be represented as follows:
a11 a12 ... a1n | b1
a21 a22 ... a2n | b2
am1 am2 ... amn | bm
Two systems of linear equations are said to be equivalent if and only if they have
the same set of solutions.
