Maple gaussian reduction multiplying rows

  1. Oct 15, 2005 #1
    Hello, Im using maple for gaussian reduction.

    I have to do it row by row for 1 part

    > g:=swaprow(f,1,2);



    [ 0. 3.5 3.5 3.5]

    [ ]

    g := [ 2 -1 -5 -7]

    [ ]

    [-0. 0. 0. 0.]

    > h:=swaprow(g,1,2);



    [ 2 -1 -5 -7]

    [ ]

    h := [ 0. 3.5 3.5 3.5]

    [ ]

    [-0. 0. 0. 0.]

    > i:=addrow(h,2,1,1/3.5);



    [ 2. 0. -4.000000000 -6.000000000]

    [ ]

    i := [ 0. 3.5 3.5 3.5]

    [ ]

    [-0. 0. 0. 0.]

    > j:=multiplyrow(i,2,1/3.5);



    j := multiplyrow(i, 2, 0.2857142857)

    There is something wrong with my command but it's exactly how it shows in the help section of my maple 9 program. Does anyone know what the problem, sorry if I posted in the wrong section. thanks
