Solution Summary

Attached is a flow chart and step-by-step example of a simple, basic approach to Gauss-Jordan elimination. This is for the student who is new to Gauss-Jordan elimination and either has or can easily set up the augmented matrix. (In the augmented matrix the columns other than the final column make up the coefficient matrix.) The student that find making the choice of elementary row operations will find this simple guide, which avoids any row interchanges, as a methodical and reliable approach to solve any system of equations in an augmented matrix, or determine if no unique solution exists. It is assumed the student is familiar with the matrix terms entry, row, column, elementary row operation, augmented matrix, and coefficient matrix but just gets a little confused or lost during the process.
