Students take three multiple-choice tests, each with ten questions. A correct answer earns 5 marks. If noanswer is given 1 mark is scored. An incorrect answer loses 2 marks. A student’s final total mark is thesum of 20% of the mark in test 1, 30% of the mark in test 2 and 50% of the mark in test 3. One student’sresponses are summarized in the table below.Test 1Test 2Test 3Correct answer765No answer135Incorrect answer210

Write down three matrices such that matrix multiplication will give this student’s final total mark andhence find this total mark. [5]
