Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Mathematics SL Portfolio Assignment 1

Title: Matrix Powers                                                                                                                           Type 1

1.Consider the matrix M =  Calculate Mnfor n = 2, 3, 4, 5, 10, 20, 50.

M²= * = = M³= * = = M⁴= * = = M⁵= * = = M¹⁰= * = = M²⁰= * = = M⁵⁰= * = = • To obtain the matrices above I multiplied (a*b+b*g), (a*f+b*h), (c*e+d*g), (c*f+d*h)as shown in the general formula seen below Describe in words any pattern you observe.

In the above matrices the pattern I observed is shown in relationship to the exponents and the numbers within the matrix. As the exponent increases consecutively the matrix is in turn multiplied by two.

Use this pattern to find a general expression for the matrix Mnin terms of n.

Middle

= * = = Determinant: 1296-784=512

P⁴= * = = Determinant: 18496-14400=4096

P⁵= * =  Determinant: 278784-246016=32768

= * = = Determinant: 400-256=144

= * = = Determinant: 12544-10816=1728

S⁴= * = = Determinant: 430336-409600=20736

S⁵= * = = Determinant: 15241216-14992384=248832

• To obtain the matrices seen above I used the matrix function on the TI 84 calculator. In order to obtain the discriminate in each problem I used the formula ad –bc such that .

Patterns Found:

The patterns portrayed in matrices Pⁿ and Sⁿ mainly correspond to the coefficient shown in the box and the determinant in each individual series. In the series of Pⁿ, as each exponent progress consecutively the coefficients associated with that particular matrix (in factored form) are multiplied by two (2, 4, 8, and 16). Also, each determinant found in the Pⁿ series is multiplied by 8 as each exponent progress consecutively (64, 512, 4096, 32768). In the Sⁿ

Conclusion = Results for k=(2), n=-(.5) = • According to the numbers substituted in the problem above, it can be inferred that the scope of the problem is all real numbers and fractions. I have found no limitations that hinder the use of k and n.

5. Explain why your results hold true in general.

Referring back to work shown in question three, my results for these statements hold true because of the amount of times the equations were carried out. Overall, the steadiness of the results for each of the problems ensures the validity of each statement. A wide array of aspects was used to prove these statements true ranging from negative integers to fractions. The patterns seen were also consistent with the results which reinforce the strength of my statements. Therefore, I conclude that my results hold true in general.

The "rate of decrease of the drug is approximately proportional to the amount remaining." The more drugs there is to start with, the fraction of the amount before is not going to be the same. If the rate doesn't change, then the relationship would not be proportional.

Therefore, when the value of y is divided by the value of x, 0 is divided by a positive number, resulting to 0. The signs of the coordinates on the positive y axis are (0,positive); the value of x equals 0 and the value of y equals a positive number.

Such an increasing and decreasing trend in the population is observed in the following years although the population seems to come closer to the sustainable limit, i.e 60000 all the time. In the 8th year, the population is exactly at its sustainable limit and henceforth, the population stabilizes by only varying slightly until the 18th year.

The quartic equation however gives a much higher value of 330 centimeters; 3 metres and 30 centimeters high for the gold medal. Again, it seems based on past trends very unlikely that humans are able to break a world record of 330 centimeters, let alone 273 centimeters by 2016.

By looking at the graph, as well as the data table (both seen above), we can see that, as expected, all 8 of the septic function data points are identical to that of the original data. There is less than 1cm of error, which is accounted for due to imprecise (zero decimal places)

The decoding can only be performed if given the scramble matrix, the cipher shift algorithm and the alphanumeric code. The 4 matrices shown below have been cipher shifted, then scrambled using matrix multiplication to conceal the true message.
