I'm really new to this forum so I'm hoping some of you guys can really help me understand some of these concepts and stuff I have =/ I want to learn what I can from you guys and hopefully I can help others also
I've got a question I'm a little stumped on involving matrix's and I'm pretty sure some kind of simultaneous equation and I need to be able to set it out right but maybe bouncing a few idea's off will be able to get me in a right direction
People tend to agree public transport is an effecitive way to travel. Public transport combination passes are marketed and sold:
'pass a' cost $12 a week and includes 5 bus rides 2 ferry rides and 3 tram rides
'pass b' costs $20 a week and includes 10 bus rides 5 ferry rides and 5 tram rides
'pass c' costs $15 a week and includes 8 bus rides 4 ferry rides and 3 tram rides
in one particular week the number of bus rides sold = 966 the number of ferry rides sold = 467 and the number of tram rides sold = 462 would the turnover made from selling passes exceed $2000? validate the response with your knowledge on matrix's.
Lemme know if I'm on right track here please
a - 5 - 2 - 3 >12
b - 10 - 5 - 5 >20
c - 8 - 4 - 3 > 15
5 2 3 | 12
10 5 5 | 20
8 4 3 | 15
1 0 0 | 3
0 1 0 | -3
0 0 1 | 1
but it's tripping me cos they're paying me (-3) for ferry rides????? I think I'm missing something major and going about it the wrong way... halp?
oh fiddlesticks! I'm not university, sorry I searched matrix's and went to the forum that had most answers, if admin could move topic it'd be much appreciated...
or not, I'm still not university though :P
