What is the Gaussian elimination matrix for the vector for the vector [itex]v=(2,-10,16,2)[/itex]?

3. The attempt at a solution

I don't understand the question. What is a "Gaussian elimination matrix for a vector?" I know that Gaussian elimination is a method for solving a system of linear equations, but I'm not sure what is meant/how to find the Gaussian elimination matrix, given a vector. Can someone please explain this to me?

Thanks
