Here's the problem, attached to the post. I've tried using matrices to solve it but I'm not sure if the answers I am getting are correct. The professor hinted that the answers should be whole numbers, but I keep getting decimals. Any help??(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I've uploaded a scan of my work, scan02 is where I plugged in for the X's and found the derivatives. I then put them into a matrix.

Thanks,

ITF
