#### Answer

The linear system can be written as: $3x=6$ $-3x+y=-7$

#### Work Step by Step

Now, compare the coefficients with the provided matrix \begin{align} & {{a}_{1}}=3 \\ & {{a}_{2}}=-3 \\ & {{b}_{1}}=0 \\ & {{b}_{2}}=1 \end{align} And \begin{align} & {{c}_{1}}=6 \\ & {{c}_{2}}=-7 \end{align} Substitute the values in the linear equation to get, \begin{align} & {{a}_{1}}x+{{b}_{1}}y={{c}_{1}} \\ & {{a}_{2}}x+{{b}_{2}}y={{c}_{2}} \\ \end{align} So, \begin{align} & 3x=6 \\ & -3x+y=-7 \end{align}
