Description: This simulation shows you the effect of round-off error in the solution of simultaneous linear equations.
Keywords: simultaneous linear equations, round-off error, significant digits.
Learning Objectives: After successful completion of running the simulation with the student would be able to 1) find the effect of round-off errors in simultaneous linear equations using Naive Gauss elimination method.
Full Resources: The full resources for the topic of the floating-point binary representation are given here which include textbook content, a PowerPoint presentation, a multiple-choice test, audiovisual lectures, and application examples.
Software Requirements: Latest versions of Safari, Microsoft Edge, Firefox, Google Chrome.
