If you want practice at hand calculation you should use the worksheet "Interactive Gaussian Elimination" (see Menu) Enter the matrix of coefficients and right-hand side vector You may edit the following statements or use the matrix and vector pallettes to enter new data ( see View, Palettes) > A:=; > b:=;

Form the augmented matrix and solve
The Maple routine GaussianElimination requires the augmented matrix A|b as input. In this worksheet this matrix is called Ab and is formed using > Ab:=;
The row echelon form H|c (here called Hc) of Ab is computed by GaussianElimination. (For a square system of equations the row echelon form of A is upper triangular ) Note that the Maple function GaussianElimination performs a systematic version of the idea of elementary row operations: (i) Multiples of R1 are subtracted from R2, R3 . . Rn to reduce the elements below the leading diagonal in the first column to zero. (ii) In the resulting system multiples of R2 are subtracted from R3, R4 . . Rn to reduce the elements below the leading diagonal in the second column to zero. (iii) This process is continued to produce a system in row echelon form, using essential row interchanges where necessary. > Hc:=GaussianElimination(Ab);

Look at the form of H|c before executing the next statement. Is there a unique solution, infinitely many solutions or no solution ? The solution vector, x, is found from H|c using BackwardSubstitute x:=BackwardSubstitute(Hc);

Maple techniques: Accessing vector components and matrix elements and checking that Ax = b The components of x are x[1], x[2] ....:
> x[1];
> x[2];

The elements of A are A[i,j], for example:
A[2,1];

...Patterns within systems of LinearEquations
HL Type 1 Maths Coursework
Maryam Allana
12 Brook
The aim of my report is to discover and examine the patterns found within the constants of the linearequations supplied. After acquiring the patterns I will solve the equations and graph the solutions to establish my analysis. Said analysis will further be reiterated through the creation of numerous similar systems, with certain patterns, which will aid in finding a conjecture. The hypothesis will be proven through the use of a common formula. (This outline will be used to solve both, Part A and B of the coursework)
Part A:
Equation 1: x+2y= 3
Equation 2: 2x-y=4
Equation 1 consists of three constants; 1, 2 and 3. These constants follow an arithmetic progression with the first term as well as the common difference both equaling to one. Another pattern present within Equation 1 is the linear formation. This can be seen as the equation is able to transformed into the formula ‘y = mx+c’ as it is able to form a straight line equation (shown below). Similar to Equation 1, Equation 2 also follows an arithmetic progression with constants of; 2, -1 and 4. It consists of a starting term of 2 and common difference of -3. As with Equation 1,...

A linearequation is an equation for a straight line
These are all linearequations:
y = 2x+1
5x = 6+3y
y/2 = 3 x
Let us look more closely at one example:
Example: y = 2x+1 is a linearequation:
The graph of y = 2x+1 is a straight line
When x increases, y increases twice as fast, hence 2x
When x is 0, y is already 1. Hence +1 is also needed
So: y = 2x + 1
Here are some example values:

y = 2x + 1

y = 2 × (1) + 1 = 1

y = 2 × 0 + 1 = 1

Check for yourself that those points are part of the line above!
Different Forms
There are many ways of writing linearequations, but they usually have constants (like "2" or
"c") and must have simple variables (like "x" or "y").
Examples: These are linearequations:
y = 3x 6
y 2 = 3(x + 1)
y + 2x 2 = 0
5x = 6
y/2 = 3
But the variables (like "x" or "y") in LinearEquations do NOT have:
Exponents (like the 2 in x2)
Square roots, cube roots, etc
Examples: These are NOT linearequations:

...CHAPTER 8
Linear Programming Applications
Teaching Suggestions
Teaching Suggestion 8.1: Importance of Formulating Large LP Problems.
Since computers are used to solve virtually all business LP problems, the most important thing a student can do is to get experience in formulating a wide variety of problems. This chapter provides such a variety.
Teaching Suggestion 8.2: Note on Production Scheduling Problems.
The Greenberg Motor example in this chapter is largest large problem in terms of the number of constraints, so it provides a good practice environment. An interesting feature to point out is that LP constraints are capable of tying one production period to the next.
Teaching Suggestion 8.3: Labor Planning Problem—Hong Kong Bank of Commerce.
This example is a good practice tool and lead-in for the Chase Manhattan Bank case at the end of the chapter. Without this example, the case would probably overpower most students.
Teaching Suggestion 8.4: Ingredient Blending Applications.
Three points can be made about the two blending examples in this chapter. First, both the diet and fuel blending problems presented here are tiny compared to huge real-world blending problems. But they do provide some sense of the issues to be faced.
Second, diet problems that are missing the constraints that force variety into the diet can be terribly embarrassing. It has been said that a hospital in New Orleans ended up with an LP...
