Examples, solutions, videos, worksheets, games and activities to help Algebra students learn how to use Cramer’s Rule to solve a system of equations.
What is the Cramer’s Rule?
The Cramer’s Rule uses determinants to solve a linear system of equations.
The following diagram shows how to use Cramer’s rule to solve a systems of 3 equations. Scroll down the page for more examples and explanations on how to use the Cramer’s Rule.
Sometimes using matrix algebra or inverse matrices to find the solution to a system of linear equations can be tedious. Sometimes it is more convenient to use Cramer’s Rule and determinants to solve a system of equations. Finding determinants becomes much more difficult with higher dimensions, and so Cramer’s Rule is better for smaller systems of linear equation.
