How Matrices Are Used to Solve Equations

1. Guassian Elimination is really just using the regular Elimination Method and applying the Triangular Form procedures to a set of linear equations, but without having to write down all the variables in the equations each time. This in itself simplifies the procedure and helps focus on the task. What is the ultimate goal of all
