Hey I am trying to solve some matrices operation on a FX-115ES, but every time i plug in the numbers and punch = it doesn't do anything it seems like i have done something wrong

The calculator barely handles matrices of up to 3X3. Matrices with complex coefficients are well beyond its capabilities.

This calculator can do some arithmetic with complex numbers, and it can do some operations with matrices. Unfortunately the two do not intersect. You cannot do complex matrix operations with this calculator.

Sorry if that wasn't the answer you wanted to see. That's just the way the calculator works.

The FX-991ES offers simple matrix operations like basic arithmetic, plus the slightly more complex operations determinant and inversion. Furthermore, it is limited to matrices with a maximum size of three rows and three columns.

The rank of a matrix is defined as the number of linearly independent row or column vectors. You can perform a simple partial test for square matrices by calculating the determinant of the matrix:

Unfortunately, this is all support the calculator offers. For small matrices (i.e. 4x4 or smaller), you should familiarize yourself with the Gau? Elimination Method algorithm for solving linear equation systems. It is a two-step procedure where a matrix first is converted to its row echelon form, and second to row canonical form to solve the LES.

You need to follow the algorithm only through the first part, the number of non-zero rows after this step equals the rank of the matrix. With a little exercise you will be able to do it faster on paper than trying to do it with your calculator only.

For larger matrices I suggest to use a PC with more powerful math software (Maple, Mathematica, ...) or, if you know some basic computer programming, just write the necessary program yourself, which is also a very good exercise both in programming and understanding the algorithm.

- Enter the matrix into matrix variable MatA.
- Press [SHIFT] [4] [7] [SHIFT] [4] [3] [)] [=]

The
enclosed screen capture shows all the possible dimensions for matrices
on the Casio FX-119ES/991ES. As you can see the maximum dimension of any
matrix is 3. You can only create matrices with dimensions less than or
equal to 3.

I will not try to guess what you mean by "solve a matrix", but I believe that what follows will help you.

Once you have created a square matrix, for example matA.

You press [Shift][Matrix] [7:det] [SHIFT][MATRIX][3:MatA], close the parenthesis and press [ENTER].

If you have defined two similar matrices (same number of row and same number of columns) you can ADD them or subtract them. The operation keys are Plus and Minus as for any number.

To multiply you use the multiplication sign. The matrices must be compatible (mxn) multiplied by (nxk).

If you know the theory behind systems of linear equations you can use matrices to solve the systems.

- First you must set Matrix calculation: Press [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 A SINGLE matrix are available by pressing [Shift][Matrix].
- The choices are

- [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

Once you have created a square matrix, for example matA.

You press [Shift][Matrix] [7:det] [SHIFT][MATRIX][3:MatA], close the parenthesis and press [ENTER].

If you have defined two similar matrices (same number of row and same number of columns) you can ADD them or subtract them. The operation keys are Plus and Minus as for any number.

If you want to manipulate 6x6 matrices, you can use one of the CASIO Graphing calculators, such as theCFX-9850GPlus, or the FX-9750G plus.

Graphing calculators from other manufacturers can also handle such matrices. The FX-115ES can handle matrices with dimensions up to 3x3.

Press MODE 6 to get into matrix mode. Note: do this only once. If you do it again, it will erase all your matrices. Pick the matrix, set its dimension, then the calculator will put up a screen allowing you to enter/edit the matrix elements. At any time you're in matrix mode, press SHIFT 4 to bring up the matrix menu.

Calculator should be in [MATRIX] MODE

Try the matrices 2X2 matrices matA [1,2,3,4] matB [5,6,7,8], Add them, subtract them, multiply them, take the square of each. If that works for these matrices, then it must be your data. Be careful with negative numbers. To enter those, you must use the change sign (-).

There is also the possibility that the instructions were misread.

Hello,

You should try to use the correct heading.

Press [2nd][Matrix] right arrow to [EDIT][ENTER] to create the [A]

matrix. Exemple of a 3x3 Matrix [A].

Once the matrix [A] is created you press [2nd][MATRIX] -->[MATH]

You can add similar matrices, you can multiply matrices, subbtract them, raise a matrix to a power, extract the square root, etc...

Here are the other operations you can pefrorm on matrices. Sorry I cannot go into the detail of things;A minimun of theory is needed to be able to use the commands.

According to the manual for the Casio FX115ES, the largest matrix it solves is a 3x3.
