A(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); difference matrixtakes the entries of a vector and computes thedifferences between the entrieslike

[x1 - 0 ] = difference from 0 and x1:1 step

[x2 - x1] = difference from x2 and x1:1 step

[x3 - x2] = difference from x3 and x2:1 step

assuming we had a vector x in Ax = b

So why now when it becomes, does it becomecentered

[x2 - 0 ] = difference from x2 and 0:1 step

[x3 - x1] = difference from x3 and x1:1 step

[0 - x3] = difference from 0 and x3:-3 steps!!!!!!!!!!
