## Math 116: Study Guide - Chapter 6

1. Determine the order of the matrix
2. Write the system of linear equations as an augmented matrix. Do not solve the system
3. Solve the system of linear equations using Gauss Jordan elimination
4. Solve the system of linear equations using Cramer's Rule
5. Given two 2x2 matrices A and B, find: A + B, 3A, AB, A squared, A inverse, the determinant of A. Also evaluate a function, f(A).
6. Use a determinant to find the equation of a line passing through the given points. The model is given.
7. True or False - 5 parts. You should definitely know about commutativity and division of both scalars and matrices.
8. Some statements are given. You must decide if performing those operations will return an row-equivalent matrix. Four parts.
9. Solve the matrix equations for X. Three parts. Know that when you factor a scalar out of a matrix, you need to multiply the scalar by I: example AX-5X = (A-5I)X, not (A-5)X
10. Multiply two matrices together.
11. Solve a system linear equations using Gauss Jordan Elimination.

### Notes

• NO CALCULATORS on the in-class portion.
• The in-class portion is worth 60 points.
• There is a take-home portion designed to be used done with the calculator.
• The take-home portion is worth 40 points and will be due the day of the in-class exam.
• Show work where necessary. Parts of problem 5 are so simple that you could do the work in your head.
• None of the problems are directly from the text.
• Make sure you use the proper technique (Gauss-Jordan or Cramer's Rule). You will miss half the points if you use the wrong technique. Make sure you use Gauss-Jordan and not just Gaussian reduction.
• On the problems that say use Gauss-Jordan reduction, you do not have to pivoting, you can use the row operations of the textbook, but I encourage the use of pivoting.
