How do I solve a system of 3 equations with a matrix?
I would use Cramer's Rule .
This rule is based upon using the matrix associated with the coefficients of the unknowns and of the pure coefficients of your system, evaluate their determinants and combine them to evaluate the values of the unknowns.
Consider an example:
Now we consider 3 other matrices,
We evaluate the three determinants for these matrices:
Finally we can calculate the values of the unknowns as:
Your final result is:
