    You need to reduce it to something like this: |dw:1355198633863:dw|

    It's a thing called "Reduced Row Echelon Form". So firstly start by making --m(row)(column)-- m00 = 1 then m10 = 0 then m20=0 So the first colum will be 1, 0, 0

    If you swap Row 2 with row 1 it'll put that 1 in the right place allowing you to make the rest of the column 0 easier.

    Yes, but you have to change the ENTIRE row.. Hence why they're called "Row Operations" 1) Interchange two rows. 2) Multiple a row by any non-zero number 3) Add a multiple of a row to another row.

    \[3x_1+x_2-2x_3=2\]\[3(1)+(-1)-2(0)=3-1=2\]

    \[x_1-2x_2+x_3=3\]\[(1)-2(-1)+0=1+2=3\] \[2x_1-x_2-3x_3=3\]\[2(1)-(-1)-3(0)=2+1=3\] The values work in all equations therefore 1, -1, 0 is correct

    No problem, when I learnt it I had lots of trouble getting it right. Just keep practicing!
