    TI 89 Matrix Help

    Hello Everyone,

    I have a question in regards to figuring out solutions on the ti-89. Here is the example I was given. (I don't know how to do all the subscripts just yet, so hopefully you can all understand)

    2x1 + 3x2 = H
    4x1 + 6x2 = 7

    Is there a way to put this in matrix form and get an answer for H??

    Here is a bit more to the question,

    Determine the value(s) of H such that the matrix is the augmented matrix of a consistent linear system


    Moderator edit: Moved from another subforum, tidied up, posts merged.

    I posted this question in the calculator section, but maybe someone has information on how to get the answer since it is linear algebra related

    What is 2x1? Is that column vector because you can't add matrices of different dimenisons.

    yes it is. I still haven't figured out the subscripts with all this computer technology, and if there are shortcuts, or if its in the characters to choose from. I'll figure it out one day.

    You can't add a 2 by 1 and 3 by 2.

    It would be easier if you just posted the question.
