Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Determinents allow you to see if the system is linearly independant (or not) without needing to actually solve the system. det() = 0? i.e. 1x + 2y + 3z = 0 (eq 1) 2x + 0y 2z = 2 (eq 2) 1x + 2y + 1z = 2 (eq 3) is a system that's not linearly independant (eq 3 = eq 2 + eq 1) Therefore, there is not a unique solution for the 3 variables x,y, & z.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Best way to find it is to use Gaussian elimination. Cramer's rule is computationally inefficient, but easier on the brain if you have a calculator.
