Elimination of Variables in Linear Systems of Equations

[previous page] [next page] [table of contents][page overview]

A linear equation

$\displaystyle a_1x_1+a_2x_2+\dots=f

with $ a_1\neq 0$ can be tranformed into

$\displaystyle x_1=(f-a_2x_2-\cdots)/a_1\,.

By inserting such expressions into the remaining equations, linear systems can thus successively be reduced into systems in fewer variables.
