Linear Systems If A is an m × n matrix with entries a i,j , vectorx is the n -column vector with entries x 1 ,...x n , and vector b is the m -column vector with entries b 1 ,...b m , the matrix equation Avectorx = vector b gives m equations, each of the form ( i th row of A ) · vectorx = b i , which is called a linear system of m equations in n variables. In the equation Avectorx = vector b, the matrix A is called the coefficient matrix of the system, and vectorx and vector b are called the vector of unknowns and the right-hand side vector, respectively.

4 Our preliminary qualitative description of the solutions of these systems (in 2-space and 3-space) suggests three cases: (1) just one unique solution; (2) no solutions; or (3) infinitely many solns. We say that the system of equations is consistent if there is at least one solution; and inconsistent if there are no solutions. Two systems with the same solutions are called equivalent. Our objective is to replace a given system by the simplest possible equivalent system. For the calculations - we don’t use the equations, but instead one more matrix A # = ( A | vector b ) , which is called the augmented matrix of the system.

    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.
