{{#category_index:B|back substitution}} When simultaneous equations can be expressed as , where is a triangular matrix and and are vectors, the solution for the last (or first) value becomes trivial. Back-substitution then involves successively replacing the last (or first) value in the equations for the other elements so that their solutions also become trivial.
