    How to solve this complex linear system with Gaussian Elimination?

    Well here is my functions:

    ix + (1+i)y = 2+3i
    (1-i)x +iy = 3+2i

    Do I solve this by doing a row reduction?

    Also how do I solve it with complex numbers? I can do it without complex, but now I'm confused.

    Multiply first equation by 2i and the second equation by (1+i)

    then add equations to eliminate variable x .

    It states by Gaussian Elimination, so to row reduce it.

    What I don't know how to do is how to row reduce linear system with complex numbers in them.
