Consider the vectors $$\mathbf{v} = \begin{pmatrix} 1\\3 \end{pmatrix}, \mathbf{w} = \begin{pmatrix} 3\\2 \end{pmatrix}$$, and $$\mathbf{x} = \begin{pmatrix}1 \\ 0 \end{pmatrix}.$$

If the vectors v, w, and x are linearly independent, answer with 0. If they aren't, find coefficients a, b, and c, not all 0, such that $$a \begin{pmatrix} 1 \\ 3 \end{pmatrix} + b \begin{pmatrix} 3 \\ 2 \end{pmatrix} + c \begin{pmatrix} 1 \\ 0 \end{pmatrix} = \begin{pmatrix}0 \\ 0 \end{pmatrix}$$and answer with (a+b)/c.

3 2D vectors cannot be linearly independent.

By eye

a=2

b=-3
