A scale tells you the relationship between the length on a drawing compared to the actual length.

A scale of 1 inch = 2 feet is then telling you that

a. Let x be the actual length of the hallway. If the length in the drawing is 5 inches, then:

The actual length of the hallway would then be x=10 feet.

b. Let y be the length of the kitchen in the drawing. If the actual length of the kitchen is 12 feet, then:

The length of the kitchen in the drawing would then be y=6 inches

Let $P$ be a polyhedron in $[0,1{]}^{n}$ defined by the constraints$Ax\le b$ for $A\in {\mathbb{R}}^{m\times n}$, $x\in {\mathbb{R}}^{n}$, and $b\in {\mathbb{R}}^{m}$.

In the solutions of an exercise, the following is mentioned:

"Since the first $n$ constraints are linearly independent, they correspond to a basic solution of the system which, a priori, may be feasible or infeasible. This solution is obtained by replacing inequalities with equalities and computing the unique solution of this linear system."

So I am quite confused about this:

1) Why does "linear independent constraints" imply that "basic solution"?

2) Is a basic solution not always feasible?
