0 1 0 decompose this matrix using LU decomposition.

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

I took this matrix and augmented it with a zero (3 by 3) matrix. Then I performed the same row operations on both...the row operations with the purpose of making the matrix I was given an upper triangular matrix, and the zero matrix a lower triangular matrix. I ended up just switching rows twice and got the identity matrix for the upper matrix and got the matrix zero for the lower matrix...so no result. Does anyone know any other method I could use to solve this problem?

Thank you,
