“How can we simplify matrices to solve them?”

 

Solving matrices is one of the most fundamental parts of modern day science and engineering. But how can we put it into a form where it’s easy to solve? Well, we could take the top row, make sure that all entries under the leading column are zero, and then repeat the process until we are at the end. Putting a matrix in this form is known as Row Echelon Form, and is one of the most common ways to solve Linear Algebra problems.
