Linear equations solver: Solving by Gaussian Elimination.


The number of equations in the system: 4
Change the names of the variables in the system
Fill the system of linear equations:

2 x1 + -3 x2 + 1 x3 + 1 x4 = 1

1 x1 + 5 x2 + -2 x3 + -1 x4 = 3

7 x1 + 1 x2 + 4 x3 + 2 x4 = 14

1 x1 + -1 x2 + 1 x3 + 1 x4 = 2

Solve the system

You can input only integer numbers, decimals or fractions in this online calculator (-2.4, 5/7, ...). More in-depth information read at these rules.

Solution:

2x1 - 3x2 + x3 + x4 = 1
x1 + 5x2 - 2x3 - x4 = 3
7x1 + x2 + 4x3 + 2x4 = 14
x1 - x2 + x3 + x4 = 2
