1. Solve the linear system
5x − y + 2z = 6
x + 2y − z = −1
3x + 2y − 2z = 1
by finding the augmented matrix and performing Gaussian elimination. (Note: You
must indicate which operation(s) you perform in each step of your solution.)

2. Determine whether the linear system
x − 2y + z = 3
2x − 3y + z = 8
is overdetermined or underdetermined and solve the system by finding the augmented
matrix and performing Gaussian elimination. (Note: You must indicate which operation(s) you perform in each step of your solution.)
