Homework Statement



Hi, im new to gauss jordan elimination and our teacher onlt taught us how to solve a 3x3 equation and gave us a 7x7 problem to answer due tom.

2m + 3n - p + q + 2r - s + 2t = 1
m - n + p - q + r + s + t = 2
2m + 2n - 2p + q - 2r + s - t = 1
m - 2p + q - r - s + t = 1
m - 2n + p - q + r + s + t = 2
m + 2n + 2p + 2q + r - s + 2t = 1
m - n - 2p - q - r + s + t = 2



Homework Equations



2m + 3n - p + q + 2r - s + 2t = 1
m - n + p - q + r + s + t = 2
2m + 2n - 2p + q - 2r + s - t = 1
m - 2p + q - r - s + t = 1
m - 2n + p - q + r + s + t = 2
m + 2n + 2p + 2q + r - s + 2t = 1
m - n - 2p - q - r + s + t = 2

The Attempt at a Solution



i tried solving it thrice . . . using different methods i saw on the internet, but im scared i dont want to fail. I realy need help pls help me out dudes.

tahnks!

First thing you should do is to write out the equations in the form of a matrix:

The entries of the matrix should consist only of the co-efficients of the unknowns. Then just juxtapose the numbers on the RHS of the system of equations to form an augmented matrix. Then perform row-reduction. Where are you stuck? It's hard to help if you don't show any work.
