How to solve h,k in terms of A,B,C,D,E with standard linear algebra method? $$2Ah + Bk = -D$$ $$Bh + 2Ck = -E$$

Are all of $A,B,C,D,E$ square matrices of the same size? What are $h$ and $k$? Scalars, vectors or square matrices? – user1551 Dec 6 '12 at 23:24

How about using Schur complement (another reference on the internet)?

@Victor It's already solved in the Wikipedia entry I linked to, isn't it? – user1551 Dec 6 '12 at 23:03
