my augmented matrix is
1 -4 3 -2 9
3 -2 1 -4 -13
-4 3 -2 1 -4
-2 1 -4 3 -10
i don't know how to plug this into my calculator to get an answer, but i got these answers using the row operations:
x= -19.5
y= -4.5
z= 0.5
w= 4.5
these answers don't seem correct, so i was wondering if anyone could tell me the actual answers when plugged into the calculator, so i could figure out what i did wrong or ask for more help.
