Find the ordered quintuplet (a,b,c,d,e) that satisfies the system of equations a+2b+3c+4d+5e=177,

2a+3b+4c+5d+e=154,

3a+4b+5c+d+2e=146,

4a+5b+c+2d+3e=138,

5a+b+2c+3d+4e=165

This a really hard questioon but don't give up, please.

(a,b,c,d,e) = (8,5,12,12,15)

Not hard at all. Mosey on over to

to see how it falls out using Gaussian elimination.
