00:00:00.290 --> 00:00:03.130
Using matrix inverses, solve the following for π.
00:00:03.360 --> 00:00:11.780
Thatβs π multiplied by the matrix with elements negative three, two, four, negative three is equal to the matrix with elements zero, negative two, three, zero.
00:00:12.350 --> 00:00:15.170
Weβre given a matrix equation and asked to solve for π.
00:00:15.540 --> 00:00:22.830
We know, in fact, that π is a matrix since if π were a scalar, weβd be able to find the value for π satisfying the equation shown.
00:00:23.260 --> 00:00:28.730
And by equality of matrices, this would mean that π would satisfy all four of the shown equations.
00:00:29.150 --> 00:00:32.410
π is equal to zero satisfies the first and fourth equations.
00:00:32.750 --> 00:00:37.200
However, for the second equation, the only value of π satisfying this is π is negative one.
00:00:37.460 --> 00:00:41.660
And for the third equation, the only value of π satisfying this is π is three over four.
00:00:42.160 --> 00:00:47.320
Since a scalar quantity cannot be three things at once, our π must be a matrix.
00:00:48.370 --> 00:01:02.480
Now we know that for a matrix multiplication to be possible, if a matrix π΄ has size π by π and a matrix π΅ has size π by π, then their product must have the size π by π, that is, π rows and π columns.
00:01:02.890 --> 00:01:07.700
If we call the resulted matrix πΆ, in our case, πΆ is a two-by-two matrix.
00:01:07.960 --> 00:01:10.280
This means both π and π are two.
00:01:10.530 --> 00:01:23.320
So if our matrix π is labeled π΄ and it multiplies in matrix π΅, we know π΅ is a two-by-two matrix; therefore, π is also two in which case our matrix π, corresponding to π΄, is also a two-by-two matrix.
00:01:24.080 --> 00:01:28.760
So letβs let our matrix π have elements π one, π two, π three, and π four.
00:01:29.440 --> 00:01:32.550
Now weβre asked to use matrix inverses to solve the equation.
00:01:32.830 --> 00:01:43.900
And we recall that for an π-by-π invertible matrix π, its inverse π minus one is an π-by-π matrix such that π multiplied by π inverse is equal to π inverse multiplied by π.
00:01:44.080 --> 00:01:52.350
And thatβs equal to the identity, where the identity matrix has all of its elements equal to zero except those on the leading diagonal, which are all equal to one.
00:01:53.060 --> 00:02:05.730
Now, remember, for a two-by-two matrix π with elements π, π, π and π, the inverse of π is one over the determinant of π multiplied by the matrix where π and π have been swapped and we take negative π and negative π.
00:02:06.250 --> 00:02:11.430
And remember, of course, that the determinant of a two-by-two matrix is ππ minus ππ.
00:02:12.190 --> 00:02:15.480
To solve the equation, weβre going to isolate π on the left-hand side.
00:02:15.920 --> 00:02:22.640
If we call our two other matrices π΄ and π΅, respectively, our equation says π multiplied by π΄ is equal to π΅.
00:02:23.180 --> 00:02:28.380
Weβre going to use the inverse of the matrix π΄ to eliminate π΄ on the left-hand side.
00:02:28.680 --> 00:02:38.380
So if we multiply both sides on the right by inverse π΄, by the inverse law, we know that π΄ multiplied by π΄ inverse is equal to the identity matrix.
00:02:39.080 --> 00:02:44.380
So we now have π multiplied by the identity matrix is π΅ multiplied by π΄ inverse.
00:02:45.000 --> 00:02:48.170
Any matrix multiplied by the identity matrix is itself.
00:02:48.170 --> 00:02:51.460
So we have π is equal to π΅ multiplied by π΄ inverse.
00:02:51.950 --> 00:02:54.860
So now we need to find the inverse of the matrix π΄.
00:02:55.390 --> 00:03:00.410
Making a little room, our matrix π΄ has elements negative three, two, four, and negative three.
00:03:00.840 --> 00:03:03.170
For the inverse of π΄, weβre going to need the determinant.
00:03:03.170 --> 00:03:06.040
And the determinant is ππ minus ππ.
00:03:06.550 --> 00:03:11.050
And thatβs negative three multiplied by negative three minus two multiplied by four.
00:03:11.430 --> 00:03:13.690
And thatβs nine minus eight, which is equal to one.
00:03:14.200 --> 00:03:22.030
The inverse is given by swapping π and π and taking the negatives of π and π within our matrix and multiplying by the determinant.
00:03:22.470 --> 00:03:24.930
In our case, π and π are both negative three.
00:03:24.930 --> 00:03:26.900
So swapping those leaves them the same.
00:03:27.550 --> 00:03:33.360
And taking the negative of π and π, where π is two and π is four, gives us negative two, negative four.
00:03:33.870 --> 00:03:39.200
The inverse of π΄ is therefore the matrix with elements negative three, negative two, negative four, and negative three.
00:03:39.590 --> 00:03:44.260
We can easily check that this is actually the inverse of the matrix π΄ by multiplying the two together.
00:03:45.010 --> 00:03:47.360
Our result should be the identity matrix.
00:03:47.780 --> 00:04:03.050
Using matrix multiplication, we have negative three multiplied by negative three plus two multiplied by negative four, negative three multiplied by negative two plus two multiplied by negative three, and similarly for the remaining two elements.
00:04:04.190 --> 00:04:13.750
This evaluates to nine minus eight, six minus six, negative 12 plus 12, and negative eight plus nine, which does indeed give us the two-by-two identity matrix.
00:04:14.230 --> 00:04:17.720
We do therefore have the correct inverse matrix for the matrix π΄.
00:04:18.180 --> 00:04:25.560
And now inserting this into our equation for the inverse of π΄, performing matrix multiplication should then give us the matrix π.
00:04:26.020 --> 00:04:44.080
We have zero times negative three plus negative two times negative four, zero times negative two plus negative two times negative three, three times negative three plus zero times negative four, and finally three times negative two plus zero times negative three.
00:04:44.970 --> 00:04:47.170
Zero times negative three is zero.
00:04:47.390 --> 00:04:50.140
Negative two times negative four is positive eight.
00:04:50.510 --> 00:04:52.500
Zero times negative two is zero.
00:04:52.500 --> 00:04:55.150
And negative two times negative three is six.
00:04:55.420 --> 00:04:57.490
Three times negative three is negative nine.
00:04:57.890 --> 00:04:59.900
Zero times negative four is zero.
00:05:00.270 --> 00:05:02.780
Three times negative two is negative six.
00:05:02.990 --> 00:05:05.150
And zero times negative three is zero.
00:05:05.500 --> 00:05:09.990
Our result is therefore the matrix with elements eight, six, negative nine, and negative six.
00:05:10.460 --> 00:05:20.710
Equating this with our matrix π, our elements are therefore π one is equal to eight, π two is equal to six, π three is equal to negative nine, and π four is equal to negative six.
00:05:21.070 --> 00:05:22.900
And this is our solution π.
