Modeling and displaying is useful when we would like to work with data. Our instructions in geometry and algebra 1 showed how to create colorful graphs suitable for presentations and analysis.
Algebra 2 uses the special tools of mathematics to model systems of equations. This tool is the matrix.
This lesson will help you to write systems of equations in matrix format and also explains how to solve them.
After studying this lesson, you will know
how to add matrices,
how to subtract matrices,
what the determinant is and
