Solve systems of linear equations *Ax = B* for *x*

- example
`x = A\B`

`x = mldivide(A,B)`

solves
the system of linear equations `x`

= `A`

\`B`

`A*x = B`

. The matrices `A`

and `B`

must
have the same number of rows. MATLAB^{®} displays a warning message
if `A`

is badly scaled or nearly singular, but
performs the calculation regardless.

If

`A`

is a scalar, then`A\B`

is equivalent to`A.\B`

.If

`A`

is a square`n`

-by-`n`

matrix and`B`

is a matrix with`n`

rows, then`x = A\B`

is a solution to the equation`A*x = B`

, if it exists.If

`A`

is a rectangular`m`

-by-`n`

matrix with`m ~= n`

, and`B`

is a matrix with`m`

rows, then`A`

\`B`

returns a least-squares solution to the system of equations`A*x= B`

.
