# Function Rci; Function Rcij - HP 50g User Manual

Graphing calculator.

As you can see, the rows that originally occupied positions 2 and 3 have been
swapped.

## Function RCI

Function RCI stands for multiplying Row I by a Constant value and replace the
resulting row at the same location. The following example, written in ALG
mode, takes the matrix stored in A, and multiplies the constant value 5 into row
number 3, replacing the row with this product.
This same exercise done in RPN mode is shown in the next figure. The left-hand
side figure shows the setting up of the matrix, the factor and the row number, in
stack levels 3, 2, and 1. The right-hand side figure shows the resulting matrix
after function RCI is activated.

### Function RCIJ

Function RCIJ stands for "take Row I and multiplying it by a constant C and then
add that multiplied row to row J, replacing row J with the resulting sum." This
type of row operation is very common in the process of Gaussian or Gauss-
Jordan elimination (more details on this procedure are presented in a
subsequent Chapter). The arguments of the function are: (1) the matrix, (2) the
constant value, (3) the row to be multiplied by the constant in(2), and (4) the
row to be replaced by the resulting sum as described above. For example,
taking the matrix stored in variable A, we are going to multiply column 3 times
1.5, and add it to column 2. The following example is performed in ALG
mode:
