Solve the system of equations by first writing it in matrix form and then using Gauss-Jordan elimination.

x-4y =-5

-2x + 9y = 125

I don't know if I am using the same form or "Gauss-Jordan" elimination.

2x - 8y = -10

-2x + 9y = 125

y = 115

Insert that value into the first equation and solve for x. Check by inserting both values into the second equation.

Thank you greatly!
