    Performs left matrix division. The infix notation for leftdivmx(a, b) is a\b.


    c = leftdivmx(a, b)
    Legacy name: mldivide



    Divisor. Scalar or matrix.


    Dividend. Scalar or array of any dimension. If a is a scalar, b can be an array of any dimension. If a is a matrix, a and b must have the same number of rows.



    Solution to c = b\a. c is a scalar or an array of any dimension. The output data type is not the greater data type of the two inputs. For example, if one input is double precision and the other input is single precision floating point number, the output is a single type.

    Different Input Types

    When a is not a scalar, a and b must be a floating-point or complex type.

    A = [1, 2; 3, 1]
    B = [3, 2; 2, 3]
    C = leftdivmx(A, B)
