Please help! Solve the system of equations using matrices. Use Gaussian elimination with back-substitution. 3x + 5y - 2w = -13 2x + 7z - w = -1 4y + 3z + 3w = 1 -x + 2y + 4z = -5

    did you try solving that yet? after back substitution what did you get for x,y,z and w?

    i did this this way, from [ 3 5 0 -2 -13 ] [ 2 0 7 -1 -1 ] [ 0 4 3 3 1 ] [ -1 2 4 0 -5 ] [ -1 2 4 0 -5 ] mult by -1--> [ 1 -2 -4 0 5 ] [ 0 4 3 3 1 ] [ 0 4 3 3 1 ] [ 2 0 7 -1 -1 ] [ 2 0 7 -1 -1 ] [ 3 5 0 -2 -13 ] [ 3 5 0 -2 -13 ] now its easy to manipulate them to be echelon form

    [ 1 -2 -4 0 5 ] [ 0 4 3 3 1 ] [ 2 0 7 -1 -1 ] [ 3 5 0 -2 -13 ] try to continue this one tobe gaussian echelon form
