If a(0,-1,3)+b(1,1,1)-c(1,2,5)=(-2,3,-8), determine a,b,c

    I am assuming that a , b , and c are scalars and this is scalar multiplication , if so, then
    b - c = -2
    -a + b -2c = 3
    3a + b - 5c = -8

    you got 3 equations in 3 unknowns, should be easy
    I will start you off....
    subtract the first two
    a+c=-5

    subtract the last two
    -4a + 3c = 11

    take it from there
