Consider the system of equations:

x1 + x2 + x3 = 6,

−x1 − 2x2 + 3x3 = 1,

3x1 − 4x2 + 4x3 = 5.

(a) Write down the augmented matrix for this system

(b) Use elementary row operations to reduced the augmented matrix to reduced row-ecehelon form

FOR A: Ive got:

1 1 1 | 6

-1 -2 3 | 1

3 -4 4 | 5

I need help with B thanks.

1 1 1 | 6

-1 -2 3 | 1

3 -4 4 | 5

1 1 1 | 6

0 -1 4 | 7 from: add #1 and #2

0 7 -1 | 13 from #3 x 1 - #3

1 1 1 | 6

0 -1 4 | 7

0 0 27| 62 from #2 x 7 + #3

1 1 1 6

0 1 -4 -7 switch signs

0 0 1 62/27 divide by 27

so x3 = 62/27

now back substitute

x2 - 4(62/27) = -7

x2 = 248/27 -7 = 59/27

x1 + 59/27 + 62/27 = 6

x1 = 41/27

x1=41/27 , x2=59/27, x3=62/27
