Trivial

A solution or example that is ridiculously simple and of little interest. Often, solutions or examples involving the number 0 are considered trivial. Nonzero solutions or examples are considered nontrivial.

For example, the equation x + 5y = 0 has the trivial solution x = 0, y = 0. Nontrivial solutions include x = 5, y = –1 and x = –2, y = 0.4.
