form if it has the following properties a All rows with all entries 0 are at the bottom of the matrix b The rst nonzero number in any nonzero row is a 1 called a leading l c In any two successive nonzero rows the leading l in the lower row occurs farther to the right than the leading l in the higher row If in addition each column that contains a leading 1 has zeros everywhere else we say that the matriX is in reduced row echelonform 2 Elementary Row Operations The following operations performed on the rows of a matriX are called elementary row operations a Interchange two rows b Multiply a

original system d Solve each equation in the system obtained in c for the leading variable the variable cor responding to the leading l e Assign arbitrary values 3 i to the free variables the nonleading variables if any Homogeneous Systems Every homogeneous system a system that has zeroes on the right is 4 consistent since x1 0 x2 0 xn 0 is always a solution Ifa homogeneous system has
