6x + y = 5

3x - y + z - w = 8

z + w = 2

Solve the system of equations using Cramers Rule if applicable.

4x + 2y = 8/5

5x - 5y = 5

Rewrite system in augmented matrix form:

0 6 1 0 5

1 3 -1 1 8

1 0 0 1 2

Solve by Gaussian elimination.

With 3 equations and 4 unknowns (w,x,y,z), the solution will be in terms of one of the unknowns and not completely numeric. It could also be inconsistent.

2.

Find the determinant of D=

4 2

5 -5

D=4*(-5)-5*2=-30

Dx (obtained by replacing the x column with the column vector)

8/5 2

5 -5

= (8/5)*(-5) - 5*2

=-18

Dy =

4 8/5

5 5

= 4*5 - 5*(8/5)

= 12

x=Dx/D=-18/(-30)=3/5

y=Dy/D=12/(-30)=-2/5

Check: 4x+2y = 8/5

5x-5y = 5

OK

2x − y = 4,

5x − y = 13
