{ 3 2 } x { a b } = { 1 0 }
{ 1 -1 } { c d } { 0 1 }
So, what is:
{ a b } = { 1 0 } x Inv. { 3 2 }
{ c d } { 0 1 } { 1 -1 }
can any help me figure it out this matrix
its do to with "inverse"
thanks in advance
Hello karimwahabI'm not entirely sure what you mean by the part in red, but the first part is clear enough. It is:
Now the matrix is called the Identity Matrix, usually denoted by . This matrix has the special property that when any other 2x2 matrix is multiplied by it (either on the left or the right) then that matrix is unchanged - it keeps its identity. In other words, for any matrix :
You then need to know that, if and are 2x2 matrices and , then and are inverses of each other. This is written and .
So the matrix is the inverse of the matrix . There's a formula for the inverse of a 2x2 matrix here: The inverse of a 2x2 matrix - mathcentre
If you use that formula, you'll find that:
I hope that answers the question.

If you're not familiar with the general process, try some online lessons regarding finding matrix inverses.
If you are asking how to complete the exercise, try some online lessons regarding matrix multiplication. (This lesson has an animation that some students find helpful.)
Have fun!
