matrix A are:
1
2 3 Interchange two rows of A.
Replace a row r of A with λr , where λ is a nonzero real
number.
Replace a row r of A with r + λr , where λ ∈ R and r is
another row of A. Gaussian elimination is the process of using elementary row
operations to change a matrix A into a matrix R , with R in
row echelon form.
One can solve a system of linear equations using Gaussian
elimination together with back substitution. Outline Linear Systems Matrices Gaussian Elimination Homogeneous Systems Examples
Example
Use Gaussian elimination and back substitution to solve the linear
systems.
1 3x1 + 2x2 − x3 = 4
x1 − 2x2 + 2x3 = 1
11x1 + 2x2 + 4x3 = 14
2 x1 + x2 = 1
x1 − x2 = 3
−x1 + 2x2 = −2

the following properties.

2 A is in row echelon form.
If row i is nonzero with leading 1 in column j , then column j
has only one nonzero entry, namely the leading 1 in row i . Outline Linear Systems Matrices Gaussian Elimination Homogeneous Systems Examples
