A large number of engineering problems require the solution of large numbers of equations. These equations are often manipulated in matrix form. 58 18 7 9 3 60 9 20 9 2 72 9 7 18 1 48 4 8 4 12 = + + + = + + + = + + + = + + + z y x w z y x w z y x w z y x w = 58 60 72 48 18 7 9 3 9 20 9 2 9 7 18 1 4 8 4 12 z y x w
