Math - system of eqns

posted by .

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.

    How did you get that though

  • Math - system of eqns -

    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
