# mldivide

Perform left division of scalars and/or matrices, equivalent to the \ operator.

## Syntax

mldivide(x,y)

## Inputs

`x,y`- Dimension: vector | matrix

## Outputs

- R
- The quotient result.

## Example

`R = mldivide([6 2; 4 1],[4; 9])`

```
R = [Matrix] 2 x 1
7.00000
-19.00000
```

## Comments

Solves the equation Ax = B, with an algorithm determined by matrix
`A`.

For a square `A` the solution is uniquely determined. For a rectangular
`A` with more rows than columns, the unique least squares solution is
computed. When `A` is underdetermined, the computed result is the least
squares solution with the minimum norm.
