Unformatted text preview: Systems of Linear Equations and Matrices Chapter 2 Systems of Linear Equations and Matrices n 2.2 Solution of Linear Systems by the Gauss-Jordan Method n 2.3 Addition and Subtraction of Matrices n 2.4 Multiplication of Matrices n 2.5 Matrix Inverses Systems of Linear Equations n A system of linear equations is a set of n linear equations in k variables (or unknowns) that are solved together. n The simplest linear system is one with 2 equations in 2 variables. n A solution of a system is a solution that satisfies all the equations in the system. Solving Systems of Linear Equations n Three methods n Graph the lines and identify the intersection (if any) n Substitution n Elimination n Example: 2 3 12 3 4 1 x y x y + =- = Graphing Method-8-6-4-2 2 4 6 8 10 12-9-6-3 3 6 9 12 15 18 2x+3y=12 3x-4y=1 ( x , y ) Substitution n Solve the first equation for y n Substitute this expression for y in the second equation.

If the coefficients of those terms are the same, the elimination method can be applied by subtracting the equations. 2 3 12 3 4 1 x y x y + =- = Elimination n Multiply the first equation by 4 and the second equation by 3, so the coefficients of y are negatives of each other. 2 3 12 3 4 1 x y x y + =- = 8 48 12 3 12 9 x x y y +- = = Elimination n Any solution of this system must also be the solution of the sum of the two equations n Substitute x = 3 in either equation to solve for y . 2 3 12 3 4 1 x y x y + =- = 8 48 9 3 1 1 1 2 7 5 2 1 x y x x y +- = = = 3 x = ( 29 2 3 12 3 2 6 3 y y y + = = = Solution: ( 3 , 2 ) 2.2 Gauss-Jordan Method n Useful when solving systems of equations with more than 2 equations and 2 variables. n Uses matrix representation to determine the solutions to a system of linear equations....
