Solving Systems of Linear Equations Using Matrices

Example

Solve

x + y + z = 6

2y + 5z = −4

2x + 5y − z = 27

Change into matrix form AX = B

Solving Systems of Linear Equations Using Matrices

where

  • A is the 3×3 matrix of x, y, z coefficients
  • X is x, y, z
  • B is 27, 6, −4

Then find the value of x, y, z

X = A-1B

A-1 = Solving Systems of Linear Equations Using Matrices 2

So

X = A-1B = Solving Systems of Linear Equations Using Matrices 3

Solution

The solution is

x = 5

y = 3

z = -2
