Question: How do I solve a system with more equations than variables in Maple?

Hi everyone.

I'm using Maple 15 to try to give random values to a matrix with some columns fixed, the problem is that it has to be unitary, so I managed to create a system of equations (with 36 linear equations and 24 variables) which should give me the information i require.

I have been trying with fsolve, etc. but i haven't been able to solve it yet, as I usually get the error: "Error, (in fsolve) number of equations, 36, does not match number of variables, 24"

Is there any way to find out which equations are neccesary and get rid of the rest of them? Or can Maple give ramdon values to some of the variables and calculate the others?

Thanks in advantage!
