Therefore.4 Chapter 1 Matrices and Systems of Equations Therefore. the new system will be equivalent to the original system. they must have the same solution set. 3. . This follows since the n -tuple (x1 . (x1 . any solution of system (b) must also be a solution of system (a). this will have no effect on the solution set. By a similar argument. For example. this will have no effect on the solution set. and the new system will be equivalent to the original system. The reordered system will be equivalent to the original system. consequently. x2 . both systems have the same solution set. the systems x1 + 2x2 = 4 3x1 − x2 = 2 4x1 + x2 = 6 and 4x1 + x2 = 6 3x1 − x2 = 2 x1 + 2x2 = 4 both involve the same three equations and. . it can be shown that any solution of (a) is also a solution of (b). x3 ) is a solution of system (b) if and only if it is a solution of system (a).

If one equation of a system is multiplied through by a nonzero real number. {(−2. This can be done by subtracting the first equation from the second: = 3 x2 3x1 + 2x2 − x3 = −2 −3x1 − x2 + x3 = 5 Then add the first and third equations: 33x1 + 2x2 − x3 = −2 2x3 = 4 3x1 + 2x2 + x3 = 2 Thus. Clearly. if we interchange the order in which two equations of a system are written. If a multiple of one equation is added to another equation.
