Outline Linear Systems Matrices Gaussian Elimination Homogeneous Systems Linear Equations Definition A linear equation in n variables is an equation of the form a 1 x 1 + a 2 x 2 + · · · + a n x n = b , where a 1 , a 2 , . . . , a n , b are fixed real numbers, and x 1 , x 2 , . . . , x n are variables, called unknowns . Example Which equations are linear? 1 2 x - 3 y = 7 2 - 5 x + 2 y - 7 z = 20 3 x + 4 y 2 = 9 4 ln x + sin y = - 2

Outline Linear Systems Matrices Gaussian Elimination Homogeneous Systems Solving Linear Equations Consider a linear equation a 1 x 1 + a 2 x 2 + · · · + a n x n = b . A solution of the equation is an ordered list of numbers s 1 , s 2 , . . . , s n such that if x 1 = s 1 , x 2 = s 2 , . . . , x n = s n , then the equation yields a true statement. To solve the equation is to find all solutions of the equation. The set of all solutions of the equation is called the solution set or general solution of the equation. If n 2, the equation has infinitely many solutions. We describe the solutions via parametric equations by assigning special variables, called parameters , to n - 1 of the variables, then expressing the last variable in terms of the parameters.

Outline Linear Systems Matrices Gaussian Elimination Homogeneous Systems Linear Systems of Equations A collection of m linear equations in n unknowns is called a system of linear equations . We can write the system as: a 11 x 1 + a 12 x 2 + · · · + a 1 n x n = b 1 a 21 x 1 + a 22 x 2 + · · · + a 2 n x n = b 2 . . . . . . . . . . . . a m 1 x 1 + a m 2 x 2 + · · · + a mn x n = b m (1) The real number a ij is the coefficient of x j in the i th equation. The real number b i is the constant term in the i th equation. A solution of the system is an ordered list of numbers s 1 , s 2 , . . . , s n that is a solution of each equation in 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.
