Example 1 Evaluate the following determinant. First find the minor determinants. The solution is To use determinants to solve a system of three equations with three variables (Cramer's Rule), say x , y , and z , four determinants must be formed following this procedure: 1. Write all equations in standard form. 2. Create the denominator determinant, D , by using the coefficients of x , y , and z from the equations and evaluate it. 3. Create the x -numerator determinant, D x , the y -numerator determinant, D y , and the z - numerator determinant, D z , by replacing the respective x , y , and z coefficients with the constants from the equations in standard form and evaluate each determinant. The answers for x , y , and z are as follows:

Unformatted text preview: Example 2 Solve this system of equations, using Cramer's Rule. Find the minor determinants. Use the constants to replace the x-coefficients. Use the constants to replace the y-coefficients. Use the constants to replace the z-coefficients. Therefore, The check is left to you. The solution is x = 1, y = –2, z = –3. If the denominator determinant, D , has a value of zero, then the system is either inconsistent or dependent. The system is dependent if all the determinants have a value of zero. The system is inconsistent if at least one of the determinants, D x , D y , or D z , has a value not equal to zero and the denominator determinant has a value of zero....

    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.
