System of linear equations • A finite set of linear equations in the variables x 1 , x 2 ,.. x n is called a system of linear equations. A sequence of numbers s 1 , s 2 ,.. s n is called a solution of the system if x 1 =s 1 , x 2 =s 2 ,.. x n =s n , is a solution of every equation in the system. For example: 4x 1 - x 2 + 3x 3 = -1 3x 1 + x 2 + 9x 3 = -4 has the solution x 1 = 1, x 2 = 2, x 3 = -1.
