Example Project 1. Define a Matlab function X=cramer(A,b) which solves the system A*X=b . You may assume that A is a square ( n × n ) matrix, and that b is a column vector in R n . 2. Use your program to solve the system A*X=b with A=magic(7) and b=[1;2;3;4;5;6;7] . Solution 1. Cramer’s rule is a method for solving a nonsingular n × n system of linear equations Avectorx = vector b . The method is as follows: For j = 1 , 2 ,...,n define an n × n matrix C j by replacing the j th column of A by vector b . Thus if A = [ vectora 1 ,vectora 2 ,...,vectora n ], then C 2 = [ vectora 1 , vector b,vectora 3 ,...,vectora n ]. The value of x j in the (unique) solution to Avectorx = vector b is then the determinant of C j divided by the determinant of A . This algorithm can be implemented as follows. function X=cramer(A,b) % % This function solves the system A*X=b using Cramer’s rule.

    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.
