hello,

i have 6 variables

a=5

b=10

c=7

d=9

x=1

y=2

when i solve this equation using gauss-jordan it gives me wrong answer

a⊕0⊕c⊕0⊕0⊕0=2

0⊕b⊕0⊕d⊕0⊕0=3

a⊕0⊕0⊕0⊕x⊕0=4

0⊕b⊕0⊕0⊕0⊕y=8

0⊕0⊕c⊕0⊕x⊕0=6

0⊕0⊕0⊕d⊕0⊕y=11

⊕ is XOR

thanks for your help :)

The initial augmented matrix is

Thanks for the reply, emakarov

but what if x and y werent given ?? what will i do ? - July 19th 2012, 07:44 AMemakarovRe: solve an xor'd linear equation
This is an underdetermined system, so it has infinitely many solutions. For each value of x and y, there is a unique solution for a, b, c and d. For example, for x = 2 and y = 1 we have a = 6, b = 9, c = 4 and d = 10.
