Describe what is meant by the augmented matrix of a system of linear equations.
Let us consider a linear system of N equations in M unknowns
represnted as , Ax=b where A is the matrix of coefficients,x is the vectors of unknowns and b is the vector of constantThe augmented matrix of the system is e.g, The system of two equations in two unknowns
can be represented in matrix form as
The augmented matrix of the system is
