B-1=
2. Using the results from above, find
a) A-1A
b) B-1B
3. For each of the following systems,
a) write each system as a matrix equation
b) find the inverse of the coefficient matrix
c) solve the matrix equation
d) substitute to check your solutions
a) x + 2 y = 2
2x+5y =3
b) 4 x + 3 y = 9
x + y = 8
d) 50 x + 30 y + 10 z = 19
80 x + 20 z = 23.40
10 x + 40 y + 60 z = 48.30
c) 3 x - 2 y = 1
-4x + 3 y = 11
e) 0.18 c + 0.24 u + 0.72 b = 33.54
1u - 2b = 0
1 c + 1 b = 39

5. The sum of three numbers is 8. The second number is 4 less than three times the first. The third
number is 7 more than twice the first added to the second. Find the three numbers.
6. Jamie, Paul, and Anne all got prime jobs out of university. They met to discuss their starting salaries. Paul
is making \$1000/year more than Anne. Jamie is making 80% of the other two salaries combined. In total, the
three make a combined annual salary of \$99990. Find their salaries.
