matrix.
2) Is it possible to multiply AB? Circle one: Yes or No. If Yes is your answer, what is the
size of AB?
3) Is it possible to multiply BA? Circle one: Yes or No. If Yes is your answer, what is the
size of BA?
4) Is it possible to multiply CD? Circle one: Yes or No. If Yes is your answer, what is the
size of CD?
5) Is it possible to multiply BC? Circle one: Yes or No. If Yes is your answer, what is the
size of BC?
6) Multiply the matrices B and D (you need to decide on the correct order).
7) Write the system of equations in matrix form; DON’T SOLVE.
2x &iexcl; 4y + 2z = 3
x &iexcl; 4y + 2z = 1
3x + 6y + 2z = 4
x &iexcl; y + 2z = 2
8) Apply the Gaussian Elimination process to the system 2x + y + 2z = 5 : Clearly show
3x + z
=4
the new systems (or augmented matrices) which the Elimination process produces and clearly
show the back substitution procedure. That is, be neat and orderly.
In 9-13, assume that A is a 3 &pound; 3 matrix and that you are solving the system of equations
