Question about Casio FX-115ES Scientific Calculator

Ad

I know this is a long time ago, but i am sure someone might ask eventually this same question.For the Casio fx-115es here are the instructions:go to mode, matrix, and pick the matrix you want to you.. you only have 3 options.create your matrix and press AC.Here is the tricky part, DO NOT go to mode again, that will reset your matrices that you have entered. Instead, press shift and the number 4 key, which is also matrix, go to press 1 (DIM), chose the other matrix to enter, and you can start mult, adding, etc.Any time you want to use the entered matrices, go through the matrix function, not the mode function.

Hello,

The multiplication of structured mathematical entities (vectors, complex numbers, matrices, etc.) is different from the multiplication of unstructured (scalar) mathematical entities (regular umbers). As you well know matrix multiplication is not commutative> This has to do with the dimensions.

An **mXn **matrix has** m rows **and** n columns**. To perform multiplication of an **kXl** matrice by an **mXn** matrix you multiply each element in one row of the first matrix by a specific element in a column of the second matrix. This imposes a condition, namely that the number of columns of the first matrix be equal to the number of rows of the second.

Thus, to be able to multiply a kXl matrix by am mXn matrix, the number of columns of the first (l) must be equal to the number of rows of the second (m).

So** MatA(kXl) * MatB(mXn) is possible only if l=m**

MatA(kX3) * Mat(3Xn) is possible and meaningful, but

Mat(kX3) * Mat(nX3) may not be possible.

To get back to your calculation, make sure that the number of columns of the first matrix is equal to the number of rows of the second.** If this condition is not satisfied, the calculator returns a dimension error**. The order of the matrices in the multiplication is, shall we say, vital.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for rating this solution.

The following was written for the Casio FX-991 ES. If matrix calculations are available on your calculator you will perform them as described below. ( I have no time to verify that the FX-991ms can perform matrix calculations).

Let me explain how to create matrices. (If you know how to do it, skip to the operations on matricies, at the end.)

First you must set Matrix calculation

[MODE][6:Matrix]. Then By entering one of the numbers [1:MatA] or [2:Matb] or [3:MatC] you get to choose the dimensions of the matrix

(mxn]. Once finished entering the matrix you clear the screen.

The operations on matrices are available by pressing [Shift][Matrix]

[1:Dim] to change the dimension of a matrix (in fact redefining the matrix)

[2:Data] enter values in a matrix

[3:MatA] access Matrix A

[4:Matb] access Matrix B

[5:MatC] access matrix C

[6:MatAns] access the Answer Matrix (the last matrix calculated)

[7:det] Calculate the determinant of a matrix already defined

[8:Trn] The transpose of a matrix already defined

To add matrices MatA+MatB

To subtract MatA-MatB

To multiply MatAxMatB

To raise a matrixe to a power 2 [x2], cube [x3]

To obtain inverse of MatA already defined MatA[x-1] [x-1] is the x to the power -1 key

Dimensions of matrices involved in operations must match.

Here is a short summary

The multiplication of structured mathematical entities (vectors, complex numbers, matrices, etc.) is different from the multiplication of unstructured (scalar) mathematical entities (regular umbers). As you well know matrix multiplication is not commutative> This has to do with the dimensions.

An**mXn **matrix has** m rows **and**

First put the calculator into matrix mode. Do this by pressing [mode]

then [5] . Insert your matrices (you have 3 that can be saved in this calculator MatA, MatB, and MatC). Press the [ac] button, this will allow you to do calculations on the matrices. From here you use the calculation keys to do your calculations. There are many calculations that this calculator can do. A couple examples are: multiplying a matrix by a constant you would type in MatA x 4 = , or you could add two matrices of the same dimension by typing in MatA + MatB =, or you could find the determinant by typing in (det (MatA)) = .

Here is a short summary

The multiplication of structured mathematical entities (vectors, complex numbers, matrices, etc.) is different from the multiplication of unstructured (scalar) mathematical entities (regular umbers). As you well know matrix multiplication is not commutative> This has to do with the dimensions.

An**mXn **matrix has** m rows **and**
n columns**. To perform multiplication of an **kXl** matrice by
an **mXn** matrix you multiply each element in one row of the first
matrix by a specific element in a column of the second matrix. This
imposes a condition, namely that the number of columns of the first
matrix be equal to the number of rows of the second.

Thus, to be able to multiply a kXl matrix by am mXn matrix, the number of columns of the first (l) must be equal to the number of rows of the second (m).

So**
MatA(kXl) * MatB(mXn) is possible only if l=m**

MatA(kX3) * Mat(3Xn) is possible and meaningful, but

Mat(kX3) * Mat(nX3) may not be possible.

To get back to your calculation, make sure that the number of columns of the first matrix is equal to the number of rows of the second.** If this condition is not satisfied, the calculator
returns a dimension error**. The order of the matrices in the
multiplication is, shall we say, vital.

First you must set Matrix calculation

[MODE][6:Matrix]. Then By entering one of the numbers [1:MatA] or [2:Matb] or [3:MatC] you get to choose the dimensions of the matrix

(mxn]. Once finished entering the matrix you clear the screen.

The operations on matrices are available by pressing [Shift][Matrix]

[1:Dim] to change the dimension of a matrix (in fact redefining the matrix)

[2:Data] enter values in a matrix

[3:MatA] access Matrix A

[4:Matb] access Matrix B

[5:MatC] access matrix C

[6:MatAns] access the Answer Matrix (the last matrix calculated)

[7:det] Calculate the determinant of a matrix already defined

[8:Trn] The transpose of a matrix already defined

To subtract MatA-MatB
