# Math 160: Study Guide - Chapter 4

- Find the inverses of a 2x2 and 3x3 matrix, if they exist. Two parts. Look
at problems 4.5.29 - 4.5.42.
- Solve the 3x3 system of linear equations. Be aware of the special cases
of no solution or many solutions and be able to write the answer in parametric
form. Three parts. Look at problems 4.3.25 - 4.3.44.
- Write the solution to the system of linear equations from the augmented
matrix. Four parts ... including the special cases. The matrices may be in
either row echelon form or reduced row echelon form. Look at problems 4.3.11-18.
- Solve the equation for X. Four parts. Know how to handle factoring of
matrices and scalar multiplication. Look at problems 4.6.31 - 4.6.36.
- Break-even analysis. Two parts. Look at problems 4.1.47 - 4.1.50. You
will be required to create the cost and revenue equations from the information
in the problem.
- Leontief Input-Output Analysis. Write the input-output matrix and find
the output. Look at problems 4.7.23 - 4.7.28.
- Incidence Matrix. Two parts. Look at problems 4.4.59 - 4.4.60.
- Construct a mathematical model for problem and use the inverse of a matrix
to find the solution. Look at problems 4.6.43-50.
- Traffic flow. Create and solve the system of linear equations necessary
to find the network flow. Give the limitations on the parameter. Find the
traffic flow for a particular value of the parameter. Look at problems 4.3.73
- 4.3.74.
- Linear Algebra application of matrices. Find the volume of a parallelpiped.
The formula is given. You have to be able to do some subtraction, enter matrices
into calculator, find determinants, transposes, and products of matrices
using the calculator.
- Statistics. Two parts. Find the least squares regression parabola passing
through the points given. This involves solving a matrix equation (similar
to problem 4), and then plug the given matrices into the calculator to actually
find the answer.

## Notes:

- Problems 1 - 8 must be worked individually and turned in before getting
into groups.
- Problems 9 - 11 may be worked in groups of up to three people. Submit one
paper for each person.
