# Thread: Finding values of variables

1. ## 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

6 0 5 6 0 w

2. 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 . . .
