Step 1

1 of 5Given that:

$\begin{bmatrix} 1&-1&1 \\ 2 & 3& 0\\0 &2&-1 \end{bmatrix}$

X =

$\begin{bmatrix} 2&-1&5 &7 &8 \\ 4 & 0& -3 & 0 &1\\3 &5&-7 &2 &1 \end{bmatrix}$

We need to solve for X:

Suppose the matrix on the left hand side of X is called A.

Then AX =

$\begin{bmatrix} 2&-1&5 &7 &8 \\ 4 & 0& -3 & 0 &1\\3 &5&-7 &2 &1 \end{bmatrix}$

Then X=

$A^{-1} \begin{bmatrix} 2&-1&5 &7 &8 \\ 4 & 0& -3 & 0 &1\\3 &5&-7 &2 &1 \end{bmatrix}$

Then we need to get the matrix $A^{-1}$ first.
