[MATLAB] matrix solving question

  1. Sep 26, 2009 #1

    I have three matrices [K] which is 8x8, [F] which is 8x1 and which is also 8x1. The relationship is as follows: [K]*=[F]. However there are unknown variables in both and [F], how do I solve for those unknown variables? I'm assuming that you can have a max of 8 unknowns in order to still be able to solve this problem. has 4 unknowns and so does [F]. I know how to solve this on a Ti-89, but I have no idea how to set this up in MATLAB. Any help would be appreciated.
