(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

x=.5x + .3y +.2z

y= .4x + .4y + .3z

z= .1x + .3y + .5z

x+y+z=1

2. Relevant equations

when solved, x= 21/62, y=23/62, z= 18/62

3. The attempt at a solution

I've tried doing row reduction but I keep failing ex:

.5 .3 .2

.4 .4 .3

.1 .3 .5

=

0 -1.2 -2.3

.4 .4 .3

.1 .3 .5 I tried many combos of this and I get lost and have no idea how to really go about it
