# used to solve a system of equations?

There are different ways to solve a single problem in math. This is why it is so complicated and easy at the same time. One can solve a problem by the method of one’s liking.

For example, there are many ways to write an equation i.e slope-intercept form, standard form, point-slope form e.t.c.

Similarly, equations are also solved using different methods. One of such methods is Cramer’s rule and it is the most favoured one.

What is Cramer’s rule?

Cramer’s rule is used to solve a system of complex mathematical equations. It is named after a Genevan mathematician, Gabriel Cramer

In Cramer’s rule, we find the value of an unknown variable, let’s say z, by replacing the z column of the matrix and finding its determinant. After that, dividing that with the value of the original matrix’s determinant.

Drawback:

It is an easy way but it can be inefficient and tiresome when the system consists of more than three equations. Moreover, it is only efficient if the system has a unique solution.

If the determinant for the matrix of the linear equation system is zero, you will need to find some other method to solve for the value of variables. This is because Cramer’s rule is not applicable in such cases.

How to solve equations using Cramer’s rule?

Even though there are some drawbacks of Cramer’s rule but where it can be applied, it is the best choice. This method has made computing the value of variables very easy.

 Note:          One thing should be noted that Cramer’s rule only works on square matrices. That is, the number of unknown variables is equal to the number of equations.

Solving a system of 2 linear equations:

It is easy to solve a system consisting of two equations, for the obvious reason of fewer calculations.

Let’s consider two general equations:

a1x + b1y = d1                   … Equation 1

a2x + b2y = d2                   … Equation 2

To solve it for the values of x and y, we need to convert them into matrix form.

Y-Column

a1      b1              d1

=

a2      b2              d2

↑            ↑

X-Column          Constant column

The 2 by 2 matrix above is the coefficient matrix A and the 1 by 2 matrix is the constant matrix. The formula for the value of a variable is:

=     |Dx| / |D|  , |Dy| / |D|

By using this formula, we can find the value of the x and y variables. The letter “D” represents the determinant of matrix A.

To find the other determinants (|Dx| or |Dy|), we have to place the constant matrix at the place of the column of the variable whose value we want to find.

In the general example above, if we want to find the value of the variable X, we will replace the X-column with the constant matrix. Like this:

d1       b1

d2       b2

It is now a matrix X and its determinant is |Dx|. Hopefully, this all makes sense. Now, let’s solve an example for better understanding.

Example:

Find the value of the X and Y variables for these equations.

6x  +  6y  =  10

1x  +  2y  =   3

Solution:

Step 1: Form the matrix.

6        6          10

=

1        2           3

A          Constant

Step 2: Find the X and Y matrix.

X-Matrix:

10      6

3       2

Y-matrix:

6      10

1       3

Step 3: Find the determinants of all three matrices i.e (|D|, |Dx|, and |Dy|).

Determinant of matrix A:

= (6)(2) - (1)(6)

= 12 - 6

= 6

Determinant of matrix X:

= (10)(2) - (3)(6)

= 20 - 18

= 2

Determinant of matrix Y:

= (6)(3) - (1)(10)

= 18 - 10

= 8

Step 4: Use Cramer’s rule formula to calculate the value of X and Y variables.

For X:

|Dx | / |D| = 2 / 6 = 1 / 3

For Y:

|Dy | / |D| = 8 / 6 = 4 / 3

X = 1 / 3    And   Y = 4 / 3

Solving a system of 3 Linear equation:

To find the values of variables in a system of three equations is very similar to finding the values in a 2 equation system.

The only difference when there are 3 equations is that you have to solve for an extra variable. Let’s see the general example.

a1x       b1y      c1z  = d1

a2x       b2y      c2z  = d2

a3x       b3y      c3z  = d3

On conversion into matrices, it will look like this:

a1      b1     c1            d1

a2      b2     c2    =      d2

a3      b3     c3            d3

This time we will have to find the Z variable as well. For this purpose, a determinant |Dz| will be computed. The rest of the process is similar to the system of the 2 equations.

Alternate method: through calculator:

Even though calculating the values of variables is easy through Cramer’s rule, you cannot deny that it’s time taking.  And let’s not forget the possibilities of minor errors which cause a major impact.

This is why it is suggested to use the online Cramer’s rule calculator. With an efficient tool, the process to solve even complex equations will be easy and quick.

You only have to enter the problem (question or equation) and the tool will solve it accordingly. The only thing you have to keep in mind is the input process.

You should add appropriately to avoid misinterpretation by a calculator.

To wrap up:

Cramer’s rule uses determinants to solve systems of equations. It is suggested for 2 and 3 equation systems. You can also pick a calculator from a vast collection of tools available over the internet.

THANK YOU SO MUCH

### My vision for India in 2047 postcard

My vision for India in 2047 postcard "Our pride for our country should not come after our country is great. Our pride makes our country great." Honourable Prime Minister, Mr. Narendra Modi Ji, As we all know that India got independence in 1947 and by 2047 we will be celebrating our 100th year of independence. On this proud occasion, I would like to express my vision for India in 2047. My vision for India in 2047 is that India should be free from corruption, poverty, illiteracy, crime and everything that India is lacking.   My vision for India is peace, prosperity and truth. My vision for India is that no child should beg, no child should be forced into bonded labour. My biggest dream is to see women empowerment in all fields for India where every person gets employment opportunities. My vision for India is that everyone should have equal respect, there is no discrimination of caste, gender, colour, religion or economic status, I want India to be scientifically advanced, tec

### Essay On My Vision For India In 2047

Essay On My Vision For India In 2047  "India will be a developed economy,  On the basis of love and harmony." Our country India became free from the slavery of 200 years of British on 15th August 1947. Independence is about to complete 75 years. On this occasion, the entire country is celebrating the Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav.  After 25 years, in the year 2047, it will be 100 years since the country got independence. The coming 25 years are the Amrit Kaal for the country. Although the country is on the path of continuous development for the last 75 years, but in the coming 25 years, we Indians will have to become as powerful as we were never before.   With regard to the year 2047, we have to set a target that after completing 100 years of independence, where do we see India. For this, everyone will have to work together for the development of the country so that the spirit of unity arises in us and gets rid of fragmented thinking. In fact, the goal of this 'Amrit Kaal'

### Education should be free for everyone Essay

Education should be free for everyone The word education is derived from the Sanskrit root "Siksha". That is, to teach. The process by which learning and teaching take place is called education. Education is an important tool that is very useful in everyone's life. Education is what separates us from other living beings on earth. A child must receive an education so as to develop social awareness, increase in knowledge, better decision-making skills, proficiency in work thus becoming a better citizen. Education is a great weapon for the people but is motivated by corruption to make the country better. All the people of that country must be educated in many circumstances, they are not able to get it. Maybe, if this education is free, then the country will be a developed country which will take the country in the right direction. Only through education we can make our dreams come true, without education we can give new conditions and direction to life, we cannot achiev
