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