Solving Linear Systems Using Matrix Algebra
One of the most commonly used applications of square matrices is solving systems of linear equations. The methods of solving systems of linear equations using matrix algebra are much more efficient than hand calculating the systems using substitution. This is especially true when dealing with systems of 3 or more variables. Two methods of matrix algebra include row reducing and finding the inverse.
