Posted by **Amy** on Saturday, March 24, 2012 at 5:22pm.

If I have the equations:

7x-4y-2z=0

2x-3y+z=-0.25

-2x-2y+5z=0

How can I solve this? I saw the explanation in a site but I didn't understand it. They appeared to make random operations until the matrix was:

1 0 0

0 1 0

0 0 1

I tried with the equations above but I got stuck no matter which order I had.

Please Help.
