Write each of the following systems of equation as a single matrix equation. See the earlier example.

{x3=x2x2=x1x1=x3\left\{\begin{array}{l}x_3=x_2 \\ x_2=x_1 \\ x_1=x_3\end{array}\right.

Step 1
1 of 3

Given equations:

x3=x2\begin{equation*} x_3=x_2 \end{equation*}

x2=x1\begin{equation*} x_2=x_1 \end{equation*}

x1=x3\begin{equation*} x_1=x_3 \end{equation*}

Rearrange the given equations in alphabetical order of the variables and the constants on the other side of the equation. If a certain variable is absent in an equation, write it with the coefficient of 00 to be later incorporated in the matrix, therefore: Equation 1 becomes:

0x1x2+x3=0\begin{equation*} 0x_1-x_2+x_3=0 \end{equation*}

Equation 2 becomes:

x1x2+0x3=0\begin{equation*} x_1-x_2+0x_3=0 \end{equation*}

Equation 3 becomes:

x1+0x2x3=0\begin{equation*} x_1+0x_2-x_3=0 \end{equation*}
