No solution

#### Explanation:

The typesetting here does not support row augmented matrices.

But, if we are going with:

However, there is an immediate problem, we have linearly dependent rows, this is a **singular** matrix :(

So this either has no solutions or infinitely many:

Then go back and look at the equations and you will see that they represent parallel lines:
