    Wait, I think we're miscommunicating. I meant that as in I did what you said and there are still "c"s floating around.

    well subtract (-4/(c-3))(row3) from row2 and subtract (2+4/(c-3))(row3) from row1

    i think you should look again row reduced echelon form

    but wouldn't that have the position which currently has the leading ones' with "c"s?

    Also, sorry for being slow right now, my brain is being overworked and I can't take a break because I have exams.

    to get the row reduced echelon form, you will make everything zero above pivots right?

    Yes, I see it. :D Let me just confirm, I get the same answer.

    "row 3 is 1 1" is what made me see it instantly.

    Actually, I have another question. Why does it matter what c is equal to if it dissapears thanks to elimination? (Sorry if that's a dumb question.)
