> What do you mean by "separate the equations"?

Let say I have 3 equations with 3 unknowns.
1x1 + 2x2 + 3x3 = 100
4x1+ 5x2 + 6x3 = 200
7x1 + 8x2 + 9x3 = 300

Normally in Matlab, you will do this command in order to solve x1,x2,x3

p=[1 2 3; 4 5 7; 7 8 9]'
q=[100 200 300]'
x=inv(p)*q

But let's say I don't want to use the method/way that I write. What other options that I have in order to solve for the 51 unknowns?
