We are asked to solve the following system using the Gauss-Jordan elimination method:

2x+3y-2z=12
2x-3y+2z=-4
4x-y+3z=-4

We put the coefficients into an augmented matrix:

`([2,3,-2,12],[2,-3,2,-4],[4,-1,3,-4])`

The idea is to get the leading digit in each row to 1 with only zeros below it. Let R1 be row...
