    17. Solve the system of equations by the Gaussian elimination method.

    x- 3y + z= 8 -------------1
    2x- 5y -3 z= 2 -----------2
    x + 4y + z= 1 ------------3

    Eliminate x from equation 2 and 3

    Equation 2 - 2 Equation 1 is
    (2x- 5y -3 z= 2 ) - 2 (x- 3y + z= 8)
    or y-5z= -14 -----new equation 2

    Equation 3 -Equation 1 is
    (x + 4y + z= 1) -(x- 3y + z= 8)
    or 7y = -7
    0r y= -1 new equation 3

    Substituting this ...

    Solution Summary

    Solves system of equations by the Gaussian elimination method, find the inverse of the given matrix, evaluates the determinant by expanding by cofactors and solves the system of equations by using Cramer's Rule.
