Solve system of linear equations, using matrix method.

5x + 2y = 4

7x + 3y = 5

Answer :

The given system of equations is:

5x + 2y = 4


7x + 3y = 5


The given system of equations can be written in the form of AX = B, where



Now |A| = 3(5)-2(7) = 1 ≠ 0


A is a non-singular matrix and hence A-1 exists.


Now



So


And


So


Hence x = 2 and y = -3.
