We study the problem on the existence of an algorithm verifying whether systems of linear equations over a group ring of a free metabelian group are solvable. The occurrence problem for free solvable groups of derived length ≥ 3is proved undecidable. We give an example of a group with undecidable word problem which is finitely presented in a variety of solvable groups and is defined by the relations from the last commutator subgroup.
