Challenge Response 38

I squared a number… Let's call the desired result n, and the initial number x. From the statement, we have that n = (x 2 -–) / x. With factorization we find that: n = (x -– 1). x / x. Simply put, we have n = x -– 1, or number minus 1. Back to statement Challenge 37 What percentage of boys?

Matrix Addition and Subtraction

Addition Given the matrices, we call the sum of these matrices the matrix, such that C ij = a ij + b ij, for all: A + B = C Examples: Note: A + B exists if and only if A and B are of the same kind. Properties Being A, B and C matrices of the same type (mxn), we have the following properties for the addition: a) commutative: A + B = B + A b) associative: (A + B) + C = A + (B + C) c) neutral element: A + 0 = 0 + A = A, where 0 is the null matrix mxnd) opposite element: A + (-A) = (-A) + A = 0 Subtraction Given the matrices, we call difference between these matrices the sum of A with the opposite matrix of B: A - B = A + (- B) Note: Next: Multiplying a Real Number by a Matrix
