Forward elimination, MATLAB in Engineering

Forward elimination:

In forward elimination, we want to obtain a 0 in the a21 position. To accomplish this, we can alter the second line in the matrix by subtracting from it 2 * the first row.

In this way we would write this ERO as:

Now, placing it back in the matrix equation form:

It says that the second equation is now -2x2 = 2 therefore x2 = -1. Now put it into the first equation:

x1 +  2(-1) = 2, and hence  x1 = 4.

This is known as the back-substitution.
