    Finding values of variables

    Find the values of the variables, for which each statement is true, if possible.

    5 x-4 9 y+3 2 9

    2 -3 8 = z+4 -3 8

    Hello, norwoodjay!

    I assume these are equal matrices.


    Find the values of the variables
    for which each statement is true, if possible.
    Code:
        | 5   x-4   9 |       | y+3   2   9 |
        |             |       |             |
        | 2    -3   8 |   =   | z+4  -3   8 |
        |             |       |             |
        | 6    0    5 |       |  6    0   w |
    You're expected to know that:
    . . Two matrices are equal if their corresponding elements are equal.

    Hence we have:

    . . y + 3 .= .5

    . . x - 4 -= .2

    . . z + 4 .= .2

    . . . . .w .= .5


    I assume you can solve them . . .
