Cardone is kind and chose these equations carefully, think about which pair of equations to use first.) -x – 5y – 5z = 2 4x – 5y + 4z = 19 x + 5y – z = -20

Elimination and substitution will allow you to solve any system, but imagine how much work it would be if the equations hadn’t been as “nice” as these. Fear not, you won’t have to solve any of those “not nice” systems by hand because mathematicians realized there was a better way to organize their work: Matrices. 2. Finish multiplying these matrices. How many cells are in the product?

Name: ________________ Now take these two ideas and put them together: rewrite the system of equations using matrices.

And we know from the original system what we want that to equal.

Now we can have an equation of matrix1 * matrix2 = matrix3. We want to solve for x, y, and z (matrix2) so we need to move matrix1 which we do by using the inverse of matrix1. Don’t worry, the calculator will find the inverse for you, just rewrite the equation how you’ll type it in.

Matrix1 is going to be called [A] on your calculator and matrix3 is going to be [B]. To create matrices on your calculator do the following: 2nd, Matrix, (Highlight Edit) Enter, (Highlight [A]) Enter, 3, Enter, 3, Enter Now you can fill in the values. 2nd, Quit when you’re done. Follow the same steps (except adjust the numbers and dimensions) to create matrix B. Now you’re ready to solve! Make sure you’re back on the home screen (2nd, Quit) To type a matrix: 2nd, Matrix, (Highlight A or B) Enter Go ahead and try [A]-1 [B]. Does it match the answer you had for the original system?
