This chapter introduces a technique used in mathematics and science to solve simultaneous equations where you have many unknowns. You may be familiar with solving two simultaneous equations with two unknowns, but by the end of this chapter, you will be able to write a program to solve 12 equations with 12 unknowns.

Manual Solution to Simultaneous Equations

Solving algebraic equations is a key part of most areas of mathematics, science, technology, and many other areas. Solution of simple equations is fairly easy to do manually, but in real life the equations are usually more complicated and computer methods are of great ...
