I've taken about 3 year break from this style of math, I've been doing Calculus since then. I am taking a begining linear algebra course and I have a system I have to solve with Gaussian Elimination. I know how to work towards a solution and what Gaussian Elimination is. However when I look at this one I just can not see how to start it up.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Oh yea, the system is:

x + 2y - z = 4

y - z = 3

x + 3y =2z = 7

2u + 4w + x +7y = 7

Also if someone on here would be able to post the code for how to get Latex to display it is an augmented matrix I'd be really greatful.

I feel with this I just need a kick in the right direction.
