They are generalizations of the equations of lines and planes which we have studied in Section 1. In this section, we begin to discuss how to solve them, that is, how to find numerical values for the x i that satisfy all the equations of a given system. We also examine whether a given system has any solutions and, if so, then how we can describe the set of all solutions. Unable to display preview.

ISSN In this paper a novel approach to the solution of rectangular systems of linear equations is presented. It starts with a homogeneous set of equations and through linear se space considerations obtains the solution by finding the null space of the coefficient matrix. To do this an orthogonal basis for the row space of the coefficient matrix is found and this basis is completed for the whole space using the Gram-Schmidt orthogonalization process. The non homogeneous case is handled by converting the problem into a homogeneous one, passing the right side vector to the left side, letting the components of the negative of the right side become the coefficients of and additional variable, solving the new system and at the end imposing the condition that the additional variable take a unit value.
Two systems of linear equations are said to be equivalent if they have equal solution sets. That each successive system of equations in Example is indeed.
In mathematics , a system of linear equations or linear system is a collection of one or more linear equations involving the same set of variables. A solution to a linear system is an assignment of values to the variables such that all the equations are simultaneously satisfied. A solution to the system above is given by. The word "system" indicates that the equations are to be considered collectively, rather than individually. In mathematics, the theory of linear systems is the basis and a fundamental part of linear algebra , a subject which is used in most parts of modern mathematics.
Today we see another example of how matrices are used in mathematics. Students are given a problem to solve. Most students think the way to solve this problem is by dividing by the 2X2 matrix.
Using matrix multiplication , we may define a system of equations with the same number of equations as variables as. For example, look at the following system of equations. The only difference between a solving a linear equation and a system of equations written in matrix form is that finding the inverse of a matrix is more complicated, and matrix multiplication is a longer process. However, the goal is the same—to isolate the variable. No, if the coefficient matrix is not invertible, the system could be inconsistent and have no solution, or be dependent and have infinitely many solutions.
