Graphing calculator.

First, we check the pivot a
absolute value in the first row and first column is the value of a
we want this number to be the pivot, then we exchange rows 1 and 3, by
using: 1#3L @RSWP. The augmented matrix and the permutation
matrix now are:
8
16
2
1
Checking the pivot at position (1,1) we now find that 16 is a better pivot than
8, thus, we perform a column swap as follows: 1#2‚N @@OK@@
@RSWP. The augmented matrix and the permutation matrix now are:
16

Now we have the largest possible value in position (1,1), i.e., we performed
full pivoting at (1,1). Next, we proceed to divide by the pivot:
16Y1L @RCI@ . The permutation matrix does not change, but the
augmented matrix is now:
1
1/2 -1/16 41/16

The next step is to eliminate the 2 from position (3,2) by using:
2\#1#3@RCIJ

1/2 -1/16 41/16

Having filled up with zeros the elements of column 1 below the pivot, now we
proceed to check the pivot at position (2,2). We find that the number 3 in
position (2,3) will be a better pivot, thus, we exchange columns 2 and 3 by
using: 2#3 ‚N@@@OK@@
