    I think you just completely ignored my point, which is that systems have variable numbers of equations.
    No, they don't. Row reduction of the system makes clear what redundancy and inconsistency there is in the system, and I wouldn't bat an eyelid at someone "shedding" an equation when it comes to solving the system but you have repeatedly ignored what it means for a system to have m equations and faulted entirely correct posts on this matter.

    I don't know what level of linear algebra you ended up a studying but this is the only way of thinking about it.
    I have not disputed your mathematics when it comes to solving systems, I have disagreed with your language. For the record I teach this material at university level. The poster above your previous one has a degree from university also (and he also disagrees with you).

    So what you're saying is that the theory of payoff pricing using arrow securities and the complete market hypothesis is wrong and basically the entirety of the theory in stochastic algebra is incorrect, amongst many other things?

    Did you hear me use any of those words? I don't think it's for accountants and bankers to define the language of mathematics.

    Before you write bs, I know the answer

    x+y+z= 1
    x^2+y^2+z^2= 39
    x^3+y^3+z^3= 61 In all respective integers
    I swear this question was in my Maths GCSE paper 3/4 years ago :eek::eek:

    This theories were developed by mathematicians. I can link you the papers if you want.

    ...
    You are squabbling with some extremely well-qualified and knowledgeable mathematicians. You are a lone voice so might be well advised to tone down the superior attitude a tad.

    The original question was answered aeons ago and this "debate" is going nowhere. It's probably time to close up shop.
