For any augmented matrix, three elementary row operations are:

1. interchange two rows of a matrix,

2. change a row by adding to it a multiple of another row, and

3. multiply each element in a row by the same nonzero number.

Since these operations are reversible, any solution to the transformed system of equations will also be a solution to the original system.

How "reversible" implies same solutions for both matrices?
