STEP 1
System of linear equation
$$3x-2y=4$$
$$x+2y=12$$
Augmented matrix is
$$\begin{bmatrix}3 & -2 &|&4\\1 & 2 &|&12 \end{bmatrix}$$
Reduring the matrix to reduced
Row echelon form by
Row operations
$$R_1\rightarrow \frac{1}{3}R$$
$$\begin{bmatrix}1 & \frac{-2}{3} &|&\frac{4}{3}\\1 & 2 &|&12 \end{bmatrix}$$
$$R_2 \rightarrow R_2-R_1$$
$$\begin{bmatrix}1 & \frac{-2}{3} &|&\frac{4}{3}\\0 & \frac{8}{3} &|&\frac{32}{3} \end{bmatrix}$$
$$R_2 \rightarrow \frac{8}{3}R_2$$
$$\begin{bmatrix}1 & \frac{-2}{3} &|&\frac{4}{3}\\0 & 1 &|&4 \end{bmatrix}$$
Step2
$$R_1 \rightarrow R_1+\frac{2}{3}R_2$$
$$\begin{bmatrix}1 & 0 &|&4\\0 & 1 &|&4 \end{bmatrix}$$
$$\Rightarrow x =4$$
$$y=4$$
Thus solution of system is $$x=4 , y=4$$
