Linear Equations: Solutions Using Matrices with Two Variables matrix  (plural,  matrices)  is a rectangular array of numbers or variables. A matrix can be used to  represent a system of equations in standard form by writing only the coefficients of the variables and  the constants in the equations.  Example 1 Represent this system as a matrix. In the preceding matrix, the dashed line separates the coefficients of the variables from the
