# Matrices?!?!?!?!?!? watch

1. I've been through the text book on how to do the basics stuff. But when it comes down to doing the questions, I am literally trial and erroring on how to get the answer. There's so much green pen that I've basically just copied the answers. :/
My maths teacher doesn't seem to help me since she just tells me to ask the others because she's too busy - (why even teach further maths if you don't even have the time).

Any tips on how to get my mind of matrices? :/

really? How tough can matrices get?

If you have been through the text books on how to do basic stuffs, then you should perhaps also look to see how to do complex stuffs, at least before going on to look at real life questions.

The complex stuffs you need to know are how to do:

Addition, multiplication and division (inverse multiplication)
Finding the determinant of a 2x2 and 3x3
Finding the Inverse
Echelon Row Reduction
and how to extract the augmented matrix from a typical set of linear equations to find x, y and z.

If you want proper help on these, throw some real examples and we can show you the rudiments. If you can understand these, it can never get any tougher.
