Once you remove the cost of the canvas from the total price, you're left with only the cost of the 8 tubes of paint.
This is represented by
$ 24.95 - $ 6.95 = $ 18
If 8 tubes of paint cost $18, then all we have to do is divide 18 by 8 to get the cost of each individual tube of paint.
Thus
$ 18 8 = $ 2.25
is the cost for one tube of paint.

There I have found from an old tutorial notes from a Linear Algebra course I am taking that I am finding the question rather cumbersome. I haven't come across any elementary matrices problem set in this way before. I have tried to using Gauss-Jordan Elimination to reduce matrix A, whilst performing the row operations on the corresponding elementary matrix. Although, I am unsure if this is the correct approach as the problem notes that RREF calculation is not necessary.
If [A|b] denotes the augmented matrix which corresponds to the system of linear equations
wy=2
w+x+z=5
2xy+4z=1,
determine the 3×3 matrix E such that [EA|Eb] is the reduced row echelon form of [A|b]. Note: You are asked to calculate the matrix E but you are not asked to calculate the reduced row echelon form.
Any help on how to approach this question or determine the matrix E would be highly appreciated.
