    1) first of all divide with 3 the whole 1st row to get pivot point 1 (all other elements below it should be zero ) . 2) then subtract 4 times of row 1 from 3rd row 3) now subtract 5 times of row one from 2nd row do this and let me know that you get .

    So now I have $$ \left[\begin{array}{rrr|r} 1 & \frac{-2}{3} & \frac{-1}{3} & \frac{-8}{3} \\ 0 & \frac{13}{3} & \frac{14}{3} & \frac{109}{3} \\ 0 & \frac{11}{3} & \frac{-11}{3} & \frac{-46}{3} \end{array}\right] $$

    1) ok now multiply the second row with 13/3 to get 1 at the first point 2) then subtract 11/3 times of 2nd row from the third row .
