Let ax + by = e
and cx + dy = f
be a system of two equations in two unknowns. Cramer's Rule is used to find the solution.
e b a e     f d ed  bf c f af  ec x =  =  y =  =  a b ad  bc a b ad  bc     c d c d
If ad  bc = 0 the calculator displays Error. In this case no solution or no unique solution exists.
