The problem reads:
Three people play a game in which there are always two winners and one loser. They have the understanding that the loser gives each winner an amoutn equal to what the winner already has. After threegames, each has lost just once and each has $24. With how much money did each begin?
I am supposed to find the answer using Gauss Jordan Elimination and an augmented matrix, but I'm having difficulty as to how to do it. At the moment I think the matrix will be a 4x4 matrix with each entry in the last column being 24, each column representing a game and each row representing each person. But other than that I'm nto sure how to do the problem.
