Hello,
Can someone help me understand this problem?
Write the given matrix as a product of elementary matrices
[ -3 1 ]
[ 2 2 ]
I'm confused by the process, can someone shed some light on how to do it?
Thanks,
My apologies, I wasn't sure what you meant by "list the three 2x2 elementary matrices that this question is referring to?"
But yes, I am familiar with Elementary Matrix and the Elementary operations.... I'm able to get some of the answer, but I keep getting stuck.
What i'm able to do is transform
[ -3 1 ]
[ 2 2 ]
to
[1 0]
[0 1]
now what do I do from there?
Here's what I have...
operations:
[1 5]
[2 2]
[1 5]
[1 1]
[1 5]
[0 -4]
[1 5]
[0 1]
[1 0]
[0 1]
