Augmented matrix is a coefficient matrix having an extra column containing the constants of system of linear equations which is separated by a vertical line. Augmented matrix is useful for solving system of linear equations.
Augmented matrix is a matrix whose elements are the coefficients of a
set of simultaneous linear equations with the constant terms of the
equations entered in an added column. To solve the system of equations using augmented matrix, simple matrix row operations are used. Solutions to the system of linear equations using augmented matrix can have one solution (consistent), no solution (inconsistent) and Infinitely many solutions.
