Linear Algebraic Equations
Q. What are linear algebraic equations?
A. Linear algebraic equations are equations of the form shown below where
x_{i} (i=1,2...n) are the n unknowns, a_{ij} (i, j=1,2...n) are the coefficients and
b_{j} are the constants.
These n equations
can be solved for the n unknowns using alorithms such as Gaussian Elimination, LU decomposition, etc.
