Solve the system of linear equations, using the Gauss-Jordan elimination method. (If there is no solution, enter NO SOLUTION. If there are infinitely many solutions, express your answer in terms of the parameters t and/or s.) 3x − 2y + z = 3 x + 3y − 4z = −7 2x − 3y + 5z = 8 x − 8y + 9z = 17

We are asked to solve the system of equations using Gaussian elimination (or Gauss-Jordan elimination.) The system:
3x-2y+z=3
x+3y-4z=-7
2x-3y+5z=8
x-8y+9z=17
The idea is to place the coefficients into an augmented matrix. Then using basic row operations we put the matrix into reduced row echelon form (the first nonzero element in each row is a 1, and under each 1 the rest of the column is zeros.)
The row operations: we can swap rows, we can replace a row with a scalar multiple of its entries, and we can replace a row with the...
