SOLUTION OF LINEAR SYSTEM OF EQUATIONS AND MATRIX INVERSION
GAUSS–JORDON ELIMINATION METHOD

Subscribe to view the full document.

This method is a variation of Gaussian elimination method. In this method, the elements above and below the diagonal are simultaneously made zero
That is a given system is reduced to an equivalent diagonal form using elementary transformations. Then the solution of the resulting diagonal system is obtained.

Sometimes, we normalize the pivot row with respect to the pivot element, before elimination. Partial pivoting is also used whenever the pivot element becomes zero .
Example Solve the system of equations using Gauss- Jordan elimination method: 2 8 2 3 4 20 4 3 2 16 x y z x y z x y z

In matrix notation, the given system can be written as 1 2 1 8 2 3 4 20 4 3 2 16 x y z    
(-2) R1 +R2 and (-4) R1+R3 1 2 1 8 0 1 2 4 0 5 2 16 x y z    

Now, we eliminate y from the first and third rows using the second row. Thus, we get 1 0 5 16 0 1 2 4 0 0 12 36 x y z    
Before, eliminating z from the first and second row, normalize the third row with respect to the pivot element, we get

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
