SOURCE: rref for 4X4 matrix does not answer correctly

To make sure that the calculator is misbehaving, I suggest that you create a simple 4X4 matrix, that is not singular, and calculate it reduced row echelon form by hand, then use the calculator to perform the reduction. You can also generate a random 4x4 matrix and calculate the rref forms by hand and with the calculator. If the calculator is defective, try to upgrade the OS. If it is still defective, well, the deck is stacked aaginst you. It may then be time to get another one or to send it for repairs.

There should not be any problem. There is however something you did not talk about. After you finish entering the coefficient of the second matrix (mat B) you should press the AC key. This way you exit the matrix editing utility.

Once the matrices are entered and saved,

Press [SHIFT][4] (Matrix)

Press 3: MatA

The label MatA appears on the screen.

Pres [+]

Press [SHIFT][4] (Matrix)

Press 4: MatB

At this point your screen shows MatA+MatB

Press [=] to get the result

[** [-36 , -92]**, **[-69,-17]**,**[-63, -71]**]

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

Hello,

The matrix Math tools, are accessed by pressing [2nd][MATRIX] ->>[MATH]. Scroll the list to find all row permutations, etc.

Sorry but you will have to implement your Gauss-Jordan method yourself, and interactively.

Hope it helps.

I assume you are speaking of solving a system of equations with a number of unknowns. If not, please correct me. Here's an example in practice:

If you have a system of 3 equations with 3 unknowns, you would set up your matrix so that the coefficients of each variable for a particular equation are on one row. So, given equations x + y + z = 0, 2x + 3y - 4z = 1, x + -z = -1 you would type the following into your calculator: [[1,1,1,0][2,3,-4,1][1,0,-1,-1]] and press enter to make sure you typed it correctly. notice that in the third row there is a zero, since we have zero time y for the third equation. Then row-reduce the matrix (2nd > 5 > 4 > 4 or in the CATALOG as rref). You should get out the matrix [[1,0,0,-1][0,1,0,1][0,0,1,0]]. This says that x=-1 y = 1 z=0 since my first column contained the coefficients for the x variable, the second for the y variable, and the third for the z variable. The last column contains the solution, the part on the other side of the equals sign.

Hope this helps! For more reading (from someone else; I just made this one up), check out the Wikipedia articles on Gaussian elimination and Systems of linear equations

i tried to graph a simple function but it wont show the lines it will only show the graph

Go to your matrix button and enter a "3x4" matrix.

Then enter it as follows:

-3 4 5 7

4 3 2 9

-5 5 3 -10

Then exit out and go to "2nd->matrix->math->rref(". Then press enter.

Your screen should look like this:

rref(

Then go to matrix and select your 3x4 matrix, press enter and close it with a parathesis. Your screen should look like this:

rref([A])

Press enter and the screen should say this:

1 0 0 2

0 1 0 -3

0 0 1 5

So,

x=3

y=-3

z=5

Hope this cleared up the confusion!
