Question 7
Let AX = b be a system of linear equations where A is an m \times n matrix and b is a m \times 1 column vector and X is an n \times 1 column vector of unknowns. Which of the following is false?
A
The system has a solution if and only if, both A and the augmented matrix [Ab] have the same rank.
