What is Cramer's rule: Definition and 30 Discussions
In linear algebra, Cramer's rule is an explicit formula for the solution of a system of linear equations with as many equations as unknowns, valid whenever the system has a unique solution. It expresses the solution in terms of the determinants of the (square) coefficient matrix and of matrices obtained from it by replacing one column by the column vector of right-hand-sides of the equations. It is named after Gabriel Cramer (1704–1752), who published the rule for an arbitrary number of unknowns in 1750, although Colin Maclaurin also published special cases of the rule in 1748 (and possibly knew of it as early as 1729).Cramer's rule implemented in a naïve way is computationally inefficient for systems of more than two or three equations. In the case of n equations in n unknowns, it requires computation of n + 1 determinants, while Gaussian elimination produces the result with the same computational complexity as the computation of a single determinant. Cramer's rule can also be numerically unstable even for 2×2 systems. However, it has recently been shown that Cramer's rule can be implemented in O(n3) time, which is comparable to more common methods of solving systems of linear equations, such as Gaussian elimination (consistently requiring 2.5 times as many arithmetic operations for all matrix sizes), while exhibiting comparable numeric stability in most cases.
Hi,
I did the first degree curve fitting in MATLAB. Please see below which also shows the output for each code line.
But I wasn't able to get the same answer using Cramer's rule method presented below. I'm sure MATLAB answer is correct so where am I going wrong with the Cramer's rule method...
My attempt:
According to the implicit function theorem as long as the determinant of the jacobian given by ∂(F,G)/∂(y,z) is not equal to 0, the parametrization is possible.
∂(F,G)/∂(y,z)=4yzMeaning that all points where z and y are not equal to 0 are possible parametrizations.

i3 -?
This is how I tried to solve using cramer's rule (denominator is the determinant of the matrix, while numerator is the determinant of the modified matrix)
I ignored the prefix Kilo, but the method is right. So I get a different value for i3.
Does anyone know what's wrong?
I got three equations:

1& -c& -b\\
-c& 1& -a\\

We have this system of equations:
\begin{cases}
x'= -x + 2y & (1)\\
y' = -2x - y + e^{-t} & (2)
\end{cases}
where x(0) = 0 ; y(0) = 0
We apply the Laplace transform on (1) and (2) and get:
(s + 1)X - 2Y = 0\\
2X + (s + 1)Y = \frac{1}{s + 1}
We can use elimination here...

we can solve non-homogeneous equations in matrix form using Cramer's rule. This rule is valid only if we are replacing the columns. Why can't we replace the rows and carry on the same? For eg we can use elementary transformations for obtaining inverses either via rows or via columns.
But we...

Howdy,
I got down Cramer's rule down fine, now I need to extend it to include equations that have complex coefficients. Do I let each matrix entry be something like, "5 + 2i" or is there something more than that?
For example,
