solve the following system of operations using matrices (row operations)

{5x + y + z + w = -5}

{x - 2y + 2z -3w = -4}

4 unknowns

no single solution.

**Cece**, Saturday, September 14, 2013 at 2:40pmI need more than that. What are the values of "x"

I worked out the values of "y" to be:

y = (15/11) + (9/11z) - (16/11w), but I could be wrong

**Steve**, Saturday, September 14, 2013 at 2:43pmoh, well, if that's the kind of solution you want, then it's ok.

Eliminating x, I get

5x+y+z+w = -5

5x-10y+10z-15w = -20

11y-9z+16w = 15

so your answer looks good to me.

**Cece**, Saturday, September 14, 2013 at 3:08pmso are you saying that "x" is 15?

**Steve**, Saturday, September 14, 2013 at 3:54pmNo. I used your answer and showed that no matter what x,z,w are, the expression you got will work for y. We eliminated x, remember?
