Cramer's rule can be used for systems of linear equations where the number of equations is equal to the number of unknown variables and coefficient matrix's determinant is not zero (otherwise system of equations does not have unique solution - either it has no solution at all or it has infinite or parametric solution, and you have to use other methods to find it).

System of linear equations in matrix form looks like this
AX=B

If system of linear equations satisfies abovementioned conditions, it has the only solution (x_{1}, x_{2}, ... , x_{n}), which can be expressed using this formula
x_{i} = \frac{\Delta_{A_i}}{\Delta_A},
where \Delta_{A_i} – determinant formed by replacing the x-column values with the answer column (B) values, and \Delta_A – coefficient matrix's determinant.

This is Cramer's rule. In fact, it is a handy way to solve for just one of the variables without having to solve the whole system of equations.
