The Linear Equation Solver

### Solving a linear equation system of up to 20 unknowns.

If you need some help please scroll down to the example. If not, fill
the 2 boxes below , then click on the "Go" button.

### Example

As an example, let's say you have the following 3 equations to solve for
the unknowns x , y , and z :
2x + 3y + 1/3z = 10

3x + 4y + 1z = 17

2y + 7z = 46

To enter the above system into the matrix solver
you enter the number "3" into the small box for the number of
unknowns/equations.

Into the big box for the coefficients you enter the following numbers :

2 3 1/3 1.0e+1
3 4 1 17
0 2 7 46.0

Notice that each row represents one equation.
Observe that the non-occurrence of a variable in an equation is
indicated by the appearance of a zero for its coefficient, see last equation
and last row of coefficients entered.

Note, that for the coefficients you may enter
either whole numbers ( like 2 ), fractions of whole numbers ( like 1/3 ),
numbers with a decimal point ( like 46.0 ), or
numbers in scientific notation ( 1.0e+01 which is the same as 10 ).

After entering all numbers click on the "Go" button. A new page will
appear with the
solution represented as a column of numbers. The first number is the solution
for "x" , the second for "y" , the third for "z" etc. Like :

1

2

6

You may check the solution :

2(1) + 3(2) + 1/3(6) = 10

3(1) + 4(2) + 1(6) = 17

0(1) + 2(2) + 7(6) = 46

Which checks out.
