**Gaussian Elimination **is a process
whereby
you can solve a series of linear equations. As an

example consider: these three equations:

3x + 2y - z = 1

6x + 6y +2z = 12

3x - 2y + z = 11

Can we easily find a way to find values of x,y,and z where all three
are satisfied?.
Through

Gaussian Elimination we can find the folowing solution:

x = 2, y = -1, z = 3

To see the applet solve this problem press the Demo button and then
press the Solve once or the

Step Solve button repeatedly.

**To solve other problems **enter the
number
of rows and column and Press the Setup

button. Then fill in the appropriate values in the Initial Matrix.
Press the Solve button, this will open

a new window Press the Solve button in this new window once or the
Step Solve button repeatedly.
