# SKILLS 4 7 − 5 2 Solving a Linear System Solve the system of equations by converting to a matrix equation. Use a graphing calculator to perform the necessary matrix operations, as in Example 7. { x + 1 2 y − 1 3 z = 4 x − 1 4 y + 1 6 z = 7 x + y − z = − 6

To determine

To solve:

The system of equations using a graphing calculator.

Explanation

Given:

The linear system is

{x+12y13z=4x14y+16z=7x+ y z=6

Approach:

A system of linear equations can be written in the form of AX=B where A is called the coefficient matrix, B is called the known matrix, and X is called the variable matrix.

If a square matrix A of dimension n×n has an inverse A1, and if X is a variable matrix and B is a known matrix both with n rows, then the solution of the matrix equation AX=B is a follows.

X=A1B.

Calculation:

The system of linear equations can be written as a single matrix equation AX=B as follows:

[xyz]=

Here, A=, B=, and X=[xyz].

Now the solution of this matrix equation is given by X=A1B.

Thus, find the solution using the graphing calculator as below.
