# Math Package to Solve Linear Equations?

`I'm feeling stupid. I used to have a math package which inverted
``matrices to solve systems of linear equations - i.e. enter the matrix
``and the y values and the program inverts the matrix and reports the x
``values. I know how to do it manually but it is laborious for large
``matrices. Perhaps Openoffice.calc/solver does this but it is not clear
``to me how to enter data for solver to do this. apt-cache search matrix
``|grep inversion doesn't turn up anything.
`

`Would someone please beat me over the head and point me to a simple
``package to do this job?
`
