Portfolio SL - Matrix

Extracts from this document...


Math Portfolio SL





In this portfolio I will try to find a general statement and patterns for given matrix binomials exercises. For data processing I will use TI-83 Plus (Sliver Edition) graphing calculator. I will use my knowledge from patterns and matrix  in order to find suitable formulas.

X=image00.pngimage00.png, Y=image37.pngimage37.png.

Find X2, X3,X4;Y2, Y3,Y4.


X2=image94.pngimage94.png= image103.pngimage103.pngX3=image01.pngimage01.pngX4=image02.pngimage02.png

Find expressions for Xn , Yn, (X+Y)n

  • The entries double for every higher power of X, i.e.:

X2= 2X= 21X
3= 4X= 22X
4= 8X = 23X     follows

I will test this formula with a random number:                                    X10=image38.pngimage38.pngX10= 210-1image46.pngimage46.png= image38.pngimage38.png 

X19= 219-1image46.pngimage46.png= image71.pngimage71.png

Xn=2n-1Xformula valid for all natural numbers N;image79.png = {1,2,3,...} as it is shown in examples.

  • The entries double for every higher power of Y, i.e.:

Y2= 2Y
3= 4Y= 22Y
4= 8Y = 23Y

A3=image05.pngimage05.png3= image06.pngimage06.pngA3= image03.pngimage03.png3= image07.pngimage07.png
A4= image05.pngimage05.png4=image08.pngimage08.pngA4= image03.pngimage03.png4=image09.pngimage09.png


b=3                                                         b=4
B=3Yimage12.pngimage12.pngB= image13.pngimage13.png                                   B=4Yimage12.pngimage12.pngB= image14.pngimage14.png
2=image13.pngimage13.png2= image15.pngimage15.pngB2= image14.pngimage14.png2= image16.pngimage16.png

B3=image13.pngimage13.png3= image18.pngimage18.pngB3= image14.pngimage14.png3= image19.pngimage19.png
B4=image13.pngimage13.png4= image20.pngimage20.pngB4= image14.pngimage14.png4= image21.pngimage21.png

Find expressions for An , Bn, (A+B)n

  • As I’m raising powers by one, the entries increase double the constant is.
    For example:

A= 6Ximage12.pngimage12.png A=image22.pngimage22.png     
2= image23.pngimage23.png              A3=image24.pngimage24.pngA4= image25.pngimage25.png
As it is visible, every entry increases by 12, i.e. double the constant
a is.

From this pattern I derived formula that:
An= anXn

Testing with random numbers:
A2=36image05.pngimage05.png= image23.pngimage23.png

=10Ximage12.pngimage12.png A=image26.pngimage26.pngA3=103X3                    
A3=image26.pngimage26.png3= image27.pngimage27.pngA3= image27.pngimage27.png

The same pattern goes for

B2=image30.pngimage30.png2= image31.pngimage31.png

B3=image30.pngimage30.png3= image32.pngimage32.png                     
B4=image30.pngimage30.png4= image33.pngimage33.png          The entries increase by 6, i.e. the double b is.    

The entries increase by app. 6.26, i.

+Bk)(A+B)= AkA + BkB +AkB + BkA

We showed that AB=BA=0, therefore AkB + BkA=0

It follows that
AkA + BkB +AkB + BkA= AkA + BkB  
kA + BkB= Ak+1 + Bk+1
Mk+1= Ak+1 + Bk+1

By doing and deriving formulas (especially in the second exercise) I found that the general formula is:
Mn=anXn+ bnYn
 Mn=(aX+ bY)n







M= image66.pngimage66.pngM= image67.pngimage67.png

 M2= image68.pngimage68.png
image67.pngimage67.png2= image69.pngimage69.png2
image67.pngimage67.png2= image70.pngimage70.pngn

image67.pngimage67.png2= image67.pngimage67.png2
Using GDC:
M2= image72.pngimage72.png







M= image66.pngimage66.pngM= image73.pngimage73.png
image73.pngimage73.png5= image73.pngimage73.png5

M5= image76.pngimage76.png

In the conclusion I can say that I found the scope of the statement.
|A|= ab-cd      
= image77.pngimage77.png|Y|= image78.pngimage78.png                             
|X|= 1-1= 0                              |Y|= 1-1= 0                            

Since the starting matrices have determinant 0 and thus they don’t have inverse, in my conclusion I can say that n€image79.png. Also I showed in examples above that constants a and b can be rational and irrational numbers (image80.pngimage80.png, therefore a, b€R. I would limit my general statement on the set of real numbers this is the only set of number that we learnt in matrix unit.

    Several function models were considered in order to find the most suitable one that would fit the first section of the graph. The linear function seems suitable because it behaves like the line of best fit, and since the points are fairly clustered together, a straight line could be drawn to connect the points together.
