Given the following matrix A, find an invertible matrix U so that UA is equal to the reduced row-echelon form of A:

You can resize a matrix (when appropriate) by clicking and dragging the bottom-right corner of the matrix.

A =
3 3 9 −6
3 3 9 −6
−2 −1 −8 1
I believe the answer for U is
3 0 0
0 -1 -2
0 0 -1

  1. well what is U * A using your U
    3 +0 +0
    0 -1 -2
    0 +0 -1
    times
    A = (interesting, first two equations (rows) the same :()
    3 3 9 −6
    3 3 9 −6
    −2 −1 −8 1
    ==========================
    well for the first two rows I get
    9 +9 27 -18
    1 -1 +7 + 4

    reduced row echelon ?????
