Operations On Matrices
1. Addition of matrices
For two matrices to be added, their order must be same. ie if a matrix A(m,n) and matrix B(y,z) to be added, then m should be equal to y and n should be equal to z.
To add the two matrices together, add their respective elements of same position. eg adding the following matrices:
The addition would look like :
finally the resulting matrix would look like
2. Multiplication of Matrix by a Scaler value
Given the following matrix contating the data of production of Item A and B, in two different shift of the day
Consider a factor that one day the production doubled its value. So the new matrix to be represented is as follows:
Thus the final resulting matrix is represented by :
Thus, if A = [aij] m × n is a matrix and k is a scalar quantity, then kXA is another matrix which is obtained by multiplying each element of A by the scalar k.
