What Is Gauss-Jordan Elimination?

Gauss-Jordan elimination is an extended variant of the Gaussian elimination process. Whereas the Gaussian elimination aims to simplify a system of linear equations into a triangular matrix form to facilitate problem-solving, the Gauss-Jordan method takes it a notch higher by refining the system into a diagonal matrix, with each row standing for a unique variable. The crux of Gauss-Jordan elimination is the conversion of the matrix into what's known as its reduced row echelon form.
