Homogeneous systems of linear equations are systems where the constant term in each equations is zero. Therefore, they have the form [A|**0**], where A is the matrix of coefficients of the variables in the system of equations. Systems of this type always have a solution. There is always the trivial solution where [x1, x2, ..., xn] = [0,0,...0].

Apart from this ,we four equation in 5 variables, which means we have one free variables and we can assign any arbitrary value to it . This implies we have an infinite no. of solutions.
