cramers rule
posted by linda on .
Solve the following linear system for x using Cramer’s rule.
Show work.
x + 2y – 3z = 22
2x – 6y + 8z = 74
x – 2y + 4z = 29
Cramer’s rule uses determinants to find the solution
Set up a 3by3 matrix using the coefficients of the x,y and z, and find its determinant, calling it D.
You can see a good example at

Which method is most efficient for solving large systems, Cramer's Rule or Gaussian Elimination and why?
