Hello, I am confused about a concept,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Suppose I am trying to solve a linear system ##Ax = b##

I want to know why is it when I solve for x, the command is x = A\b. Why would it not be x = b\A. One could see that if you divide x on both sides, then b/x = A. Is this not true for the matrix?
