# Math Help - matrices? how do i do this

1. ## matrices? how do i do this

terry scored 14 one point free throws 29 two point field goals and 9 three point field goals this season .. set up the matrices and multiply to find the total # of points terry scored this season

2. Not sure if you need a matrix. 1point * 14 + 2pts * 29 + 3pts * 9 = ??

$\text}Terry scored 14 one-point free throws, 29 two-point field goals,}$
$\text{and 9 three-point field goals this season.}$

$\text{Set up the matrices and multiply to find the total points Terry scored.}$

There isn't too much to do . . . Exactly where is your difficulty?

. . $\begin{pmatrix}14 & 29 & 9 \end{pmatrix}\begin{pmatrix}1 \\ 2 \\ 3\end{pmatrix} \;=\;(14)(1) + (29)(2) + (9)(3) \;=\; 99$
