Solution to Linear system wanted
Posted: Nov 25, 2012 5:22 AM

Can anybody help me find a positive solution to the series of equations below please Used Linear solver but it comes up with a negative solution for all variables and I dont understand why.
6.2 a -1.7 b -4.7 c -7.7 d -18.9 g -18.6 f = 1
-6.2 a + 1.7 b -4.7 c -7.7 d -18.9 g -18.6 f = 1
-6.2 a -1.7 b + 4.7 c -7.7 d -18.9 g -18.6 f = 1
-6.2 a -1.7 b -4.7 c + 7.7 d -18.9 g -18.6 f = 1
-6.2 a -1.7 b -4.7 c -7.7 d + 18.9 g -18.6 f = 1
-6.2 a -1.7 b -4.7 c -7.7 d -18.9 g + 18.6 f = 1
This system has infinitely many solutions, which are (with parameters ri):

{ a = -0.04032258064516131, b = -0.1470588235294118, c = -0.053191489361702128, d = -0.032467532467532464, f = -0.013440860215053764, g = -0.013227513227513229 }.
