Finish the job by performing Gaussian elimination on row 3. What are the contents of row 3 after you have done so? [1 6 -2 0] [0 -3 1 5] [2 0 3 9] ------------------- Subtract 2 times the 1st row from the 3rd row to get: [1 6 -2 0] [0 -3 1 5] [0 -12 7 9] --- Subtract 4 times the 2nd row from the 3rd row to get: [1 6 -2 0] [0 -3 1 5] [0 0 3 -11] ------ Solution: [0 0 3 -11] ---- Cheers, Stan H. ----- 1. 0 0 3 29 2. 0 0 1 9 3. 0 0 3 -11 4. 0 0 -5 -11
