If you dont use matrix row reduction i will send a dildo to your house

you tell us to find x yet your system is in terms of a, b, c, d, e, f, g, h

btw every time I hear the word matrix I think of someone from the deep south saying "mah trix"

if you really want to solve this convert the matrix into this form on paper, type the matrix up so that it matches wolfram alpha matrix format, and type "row reduce the matrix" into wolfram alpha. also you're not allowed to use the variable e because wolfram alpha will interpret that as shorthand for *10^.
also, don't use this forum for homework help. only reason I didn't lock this before I typed this post was because the solution is automatable and I was feeling pedagogical. only reason I'm not locking it now is because maybe people will post some funny stuff

Interesting. I would have parsed 24/23^2 as 24/(23*23) rather than (24/23)^2 since that's what the order of operations would be if you just shoved it into a computer without doing anything else.

Running that system through matlab gave me

 a 2.264206​ b -1.26421​ c -1.8237​ d 0.17345​ e 0.972068​ f -2.00095​ g 0.001239​ h 0.598767​
Which is sort of, but not really, close to your solution.

As someone who failed out of my school’s math program, this wasn’t one of the first things I wanted to see when I woke up :(

Does anyone remember that name for that one matrix transformation that's like M = U * SIGMA * V* or whatever? I'm struggling to remember it from my numerical linear algebra class... it was like a 3 letter thing or something

Singular Value Decomposition (SVD), and you can use it to do basic trend analysis in a set of data (which is Principal Component Analysis (PCA), another 3 letter acronym key to Linear Algebra).

oops... i think i was supposed to put the fruits in the math equation.. but i put the math in the fruit tree...
sorry for messing up everybody...
