    there are different methods that all come to the same results; since you have not defined a method, the determinant is suitable

    the determinant is kidna useless you can tell if it's not factorable once you have the equation narrowed to 2 variables.

    you scale the eqauations so that you can combine them and eliminate one of more of the variables

    R1, 2a – 3b + (2) = 10 R2, 0 +9b -27(2) = -72 R1, 2a – 3b = 10-2 R2, 0 +9b = -72+54 b = -18/9 = -2 R1, 2a – 3(-2) = 8 R1, 2a + 6 = 8 a = (8-6)/2 = 1
