** Please see the attached file for the complete solution explanation **

To solve a system Ax = b doing LU factorization we let A = LU and then substitute into the original equation i.e. Ax = b therefore getting LUx = b. We then solve the system Ux = y Ly = b and Ux = y where we first solve Ly = b to find y and then substitute y into Ux = y to find x

So for:
(please see the attached file)

We need to find L and U for which A=LU
We need to perform row operations on matrix A where (please see the attached file) to form the Upper triangular matrix while at the same time using the opposite of the multiplier we also form the Lower ...
