If the system of equations $ax+y+z=0$, $x+by+z=0$, $x+y+cz=0$, where $(a,b,c\neq 1)$ has a non-trivial solutions, then the value of $\large\frac{1}{1-a}+\frac{1}{1-b}+\frac{1}{1-c}$ is


1 Answer

For given homogeneous equations to have non-zero solutions,
$\Rightarrow a(b-1)(c-1)-(1-a)(c-1)-(1-a)(b-1)=0$
Dividing by $(1-a)(1-b)(1-c)$ we get,
Hence (c) is the correct answer.
