How do you put this into reduced row echelon form?
$$
\left[\begin{array}{rrrr}
3 & 2 & 1 & 8 \\
5 & 1 & 3 & 23 \\
4 & 1 & 5 & 18
\end{array}\right]

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 $$ \left[\begin{array}{rrrr} 1 & \frac{2}{3} & \frac{1}{3} & \frac{8}{3} \\ 0 & \frac{13}{3} & \frac{14}{3} & \frac{109}{3} \\ 0 & \frac{11}{3} & \frac{11}{3} & \frac{46}{3} \end{array}\right] $$

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 .

1) multiply? would that possibly be divide by 13/3?

i should have written to multiply with 3/13 ... yes if you divide with 13/3 same .. end result will be 1

let me give you online interactive tool for free to convert matrix to reduced ech form. go here http://www.math.odu.edu/~bogacki/cgibin/lat.cgi select Transforming a matrix to reduced row echelon form (third one in list) then select 3 rows and three columns then enter the left hand part of matrix it will teach you complete steps !
