Matrices are tables of numbers or any algebraic quantities that can be added or multiplied in a specific arrangement. A matrix is a block of numbers that consist of columns and rows used to present raw data, store information or to perform certain mathematical operations
The aim of this portfolio is to find a general trend in different sets of matrices, therefore find a general formula that applies for all of the matrices. The pattern will then be explained and tested to see if applies correctly to all the sets of matrices.
To calculate Mn for n = 2, 3, 4, 5, 10, 20, 50 I used a GDC.
Determinants are defined as ad-bc in a 2 2 matrix, and is denoted by det A = | A |. In Other words, det A = | A | = = ad-bc.
M2 = =, det (M2) = 16 = 42
M3 = =, det (M2) = 64 = 43
