Real-World Augmented Matrix Problem

From the following augmented matrix, first write the system of equations that represents the augmented matrix and then create a real-world word problem that would represent these equations and their unknowns. Be creative. Do not use word problems that are in the assignments or course material. In your own words, please post a

Matrix formulation for interpolation of data

In the attached article, the author proposes a way to interpolate quarterly values when only annual values are available. The only page of this article which is useful for this problem is page 66 (or the second page in this attachment). I am trying to understand the very first step, which is how to get from the statement of t

Properties of Matrices and Vectors

Please show all work for attached problems. 1. Let A, and B be skew- symmetric matrices. Prove that AB is skew symmetric if and only if AB = -BA 2. IF possible find a vector u=(a,b,c) where a, b, c are not all zero so that "u" is orthogonal to both vectors: x= (1,2,1) and y = (1,-1,1) The following are proof questions.

Question on chromatic number of graph, adjacency matrix and list.

Please see attached questions. This is three questions. Question #1 - find the chromatic number of the graph. Question #2 - It might be supposed that if a graph has a large number of vertices and each vertex has a large degree, then the chromatic number would have to be large. Show that this conjecture is incorrect by co
