00:00:01.640 --> 00:00:11.520
Consider the matrices ๐ equals the matrix negative seven, four, negative one, one, and ๐ด equals a matrix seven, four, three, three.
00:00:12.560 --> 00:00:24.120
Is it true that negative seven multiplied by the matrix ๐ plus the matrix ๐ด is equal to negative seven multiplied by the matrix ๐ด minus seven multiplied by the matrix ๐?
00:00:25.920 --> 00:00:33.000
Well, the first thing we need to work out in this question is what is matrix ๐ plus matrix A?
00:00:33.960 --> 00:00:39.440
So, to work this out, what we need to do is we need to add the corresponding components of each of our matrices.
00:00:40.400 --> 00:00:46.400
So, for example, if you want the top-left component, what weโre gonna do is weโre gonna add negative seven and seven.
00:00:47.000 --> 00:00:54.520
And then, if we do this for the rest of the components, weโre gonna have four add four, negative one add three, and one add three.
00:00:55.440 --> 00:00:59.720
So, this is gonna leave us with the matrix zero, eight, two, four.
00:01:00.800 --> 00:01:05.840
So, now what we want to do is we want to multiply this by negative seven.
00:01:06.400 --> 00:01:19.440
And to do that, what we do is we multiply each component by negative seven, so we get zero multiplied by negative seven, eight multiplied by negative seven, two multiplied by negative seven, and four multiplied by negative seven.
00:01:20.480 --> 00:01:27.480
And this leaves us with the matrix zero, negative 56, negative 14, negative 28.
00:01:29.000 --> 00:01:32.400
So, great, thatโs the left-hand side of our equation worked out.
00:01:33.040 --> 00:01:34.840
Now, we need to work out our right-hand side of the equation.
00:01:35.800 --> 00:01:42.160
And to do this, we need to find out what negative seven multiplied by the matrix ๐ด minus seven multiplied by the matrix ๐ is.
00:01:43.280 --> 00:01:59.080
So, when we multiply matrix ๐ด by negative seven, weโre getting negative 49, and we got that because negative seven multiplied by seven is negative 49, negative 28, negative 21, and negative 21.
00:01:59.880 --> 00:02:03.720
So, thatโs our negative seven multiplied by the matrix ๐ด.
00:02:05.160 --> 00:02:09.080
Now, what we want to do is work out what seven multiplied by the matrix ๐ is.
00:02:10.160 --> 00:02:16.360
And when I do this, what I get is negative 49, 28, negative seven, seven is our matrix.
00:02:17.480 --> 00:02:22.520
Again, we did this by multiplying each of our components by seven.
00:02:23.360 --> 00:02:33.120
So, now we move on because what we want to work out is what negative seven multiplied by the matrix ๐ด minus seven multiplied by the matrix ๐ is.
00:02:34.120 --> 00:02:44.280
And to do that, what we do is we subtract the components that we found for seven multiplied by matrix ๐ by all the ones we found for negative seven multiplied by matrix ๐ด.
00:02:45.520 --> 00:02:58.720
So, we get negative 49 minus negative 49, negative 28 minus 28, negative 21 minus negative seven, and negative 21 minus seven.
00:03:00.480 --> 00:03:08.920
So then, when we carry out these calculations, what we get is the matrix zero, negative 56, negative 14, negative 28.
00:03:09.960 --> 00:03:13.960
So, we found out that the left-hand side is equal to the right-hand side.
00:03:15.040 --> 00:03:27.440
So, in answer to our question, we can say that it is true that negative seven multiplied by the matrix ๐ plus ๐ด is equal to negative seven multiplied by the matrix ๐ด minus seven multiplied by the matrix ๐.
00:03:28.120 --> 00:03:31.840
So, weโve done that, and we proved it to be correct.
00:03:33.360 --> 00:03:36.920
But we couldโve worked out using another quicker method.
00:03:37.520 --> 00:03:42.520
And that method wouldโve been to use the distributive properties of multiplication.
00:03:43.440 --> 00:03:53.040
And thatโs because if we had ๐ multiplied by ๐ plus ๐, this is equal to ๐ multiplied by ๐ plus ๐ multiplied by ๐.
00:03:54.160 --> 00:04:02.400
So, in our example, the negative seven multiplied by the matrix ๐ would be the bit which is negative seven multiplied by matrix ๐.
00:04:03.120 --> 00:04:12.320
And the negative seven multiplied by matrix ๐ด would be the first part of our right-hand side, which is negative seven multiplied by matrix ๐ด.
00:04:13.600 --> 00:04:20.240
So, that wouldโve been another way that we couldโve proved that the answer was yes.
