## linearSolve

**Block Category:** Matrix Operation

**Description:** The linearSolve block solves systems of
linear equations of the A * X = b, where A is an N-by-N matrix and X and b are
N-by-1 matrices. This block will also compute the least squares solution to an
over-determined system, or the minimum norm solution to an under-determined
system.

The linearSolve block accepts as input an extended matrix
(A | b). That is, if A is N-by-N and b is N-by-1, then the input matrix must be
N-by- (N + 1) and the last column is of components of b.

#### Example

The linearSolve block computes the values of three unknowns
(x, y, and z) in the following three equations:

11x + 4y + 31x = -19

3x + 17y + 4z = 13

6x + 2y + 1z = 7
