    I'm having a lot of trouble with this question; I get everything being = 0 for 1a, which I think is wrong, and for 1b I can't get it into row echelon form. Could someone help me please?

    1a looks like it has a parametric solution.

    Show working? Haven't checked but row reducing yields x = 0, y = (3/2)z for me

    Well first off, explain how you got everything being 0 for 1a.

    I thought there couldn't be any non-zero elements above and below the leading 1 for reduced echelon form ?

    Lol, you're right, I just thought it wanted the answer. Well just a few more manipulations for OP to do, but nothing too drastic (I think).
