In this talk we will discuss the linear system
(1) \sum_{l=1}^r \sum_{m=1}^n p_lm^s x_m q_lm^s = A_s ,
s = 1,2, … , n ,

where n, r >= 1 are given constants,
p_lm^s, q_lm^s, A_s, l=1,…, r,  m = 1, … , n, s = 1, … , n,
are given real quaternions, x_m, m = 1, … , n, are unkown real quaternions.

Here we propose an algorithm for finding a solution to the system (1). Also, we give necessary and sufficient conditions for the solvability of the system (1) and some examples.
