New cards

2

how to find the inverse of 2x2 matrix

New cards

3

what is the minor of an element

the determinant of the matrix obtained by deleting the row and column in which that element lies

New cards

4

when is a matrix singular and what does this mean?

when detM=0, so this matrix doesn't have an inverse

New cards

5

how to find the determinant

a(minor of a) -b(minor of b) +c(minor of c)

New cards

6

what is the transpose of a matrix?

changing the columns into rows, and vice versa

New cards

7

acronym and steps to inverse the 3x3 matrix A

Driving Monkeys Can’t Travel Fast

detA, matrix of minors, matrix of cofactors, transpose, apply the formula

New cards

8

how to form the matrix of cofactors

switch the sides' signs, keep the corners constant (and the middle)

New cards

9

the final formula in finding the inverse of a 3x3 matrix

New cards

10

how to form the 3x3 matrix in the simultaneous equations method

each row is the coefficients of x, y and z in each equation

New cards

11

how to solve matrix simultaneous equations

(matrix of coefficients)*(x,y,z matrix)=(matrix of answers to sim.eqs)

New cards

12

when do the planes meet at a single point

when the determinant is __ not__ 0

New cards

13

when do the planes form a sheaf

det=0, reduced to two equations which are consistent, the three equations aren’t multiples of each other

New cards

14

when are the planes the same plane

all three **equations** are multiples of each other

New cards

15

when do the planes form a prism

det=0, when reduced to two equations they are inconsistent, no rows of the matrix are multiples of each other

New cards

16

when are only two planes parallel

when **only** two rows of the matrix are multiples of each other

New cards

17

when are all the planes parallel

when all rows of the matrix are multiples of each other, but __ not__ the equations

New cards

18

what does the determinant of a transformation matrix represent

area scale factor

New cards

19

a rotation of A about the x axis

New cards

20

a rotation of θ about the y axis

New cards

21

a rotation of C about the z axis

New cards

22

det(AB)=

(detA)(detB)

New cards

23

(AB)⁻¹=

B⁻¹A⁻¹ (think of order of geometric transformations)
