Unformatted text preview: t Gauss-Jordan elimination would be less work in all likelihood that if we solved directly. Also, as we saw in the final example worked in this section. There really is no one set path to take through these problems. Each system is different and may require a different path and set of operations to make. Also, the path that one person finds to be the easiest may not by the path that another person finds to be the easiest. Regardless of the path however, the final answer will be the same. © 2007 Paul Dawkins 334 http://tutorial.math.lamar.edu/terms.aspx College Algebra More on the Augmented Matrix In the first section in this chapter we saw that there were some special cases in the solution to systems of two equations. We saw that there didn’t have to be a solution at all and that we could in fact have infinitely many solutions. In this section we are going to generalize this out to general systems of equations and we’re going to look at how to deal with these cases when using augmented matrices to solve a system. Let’s first give...
