    idea is to get rid of one variable at a time matrix - even better can you put it in the calculator?

    sorry it has been a long time since I have done linear algebra. I just remember it was my favorite course during my undergrad days....... :)

    these are arbitrarty numbers but if i get two rows that have 0 0 does that mean its bad?

    right, but if you have any rows that are all zeros that means what?

    |dw:1338862146454:dw| you goal is to create that solution form (sorry I can't even remember its official name, may I be forgiven by the math gods) I would multipy the first row by (1/2) that would force that first term to turn into a 1 but don't forget to change all the other numbers in that row

    I think that is called row multiplication

    got it, but for the little example i just posted: 2 4 6 -8 3 6 7 10, this matrix, i get the bottom row is 0 0 .. and none of the multiple choices look like that, what am i doing wrong?
