Solve the system

3x1 13x2 | 9x3 | 3x4 = 19
6x1 | 4x2 | x3 18x4 = 34
6x1 - 2x2 + 2x3 + 4x4 - 16
12x1 - 8x2 + 6x3 + 10x4 - 26

by hand using scaled partial pivoting. You may only do the operations on rows that are permitted in Algorithm 6.3 You should never multiply a row by a constant for any reason. Interchange rows as necessary rather than use the NROW arrow. Justify all row interchanges and write out the transformed matrix after you finish working on each column.
