Could you help with the last question on my homework?

Attachment 761644

I’ve multiplied them together and that’s pretty much it so far. I’m not sure what to do next. I’m sure it’s either really obvious or I’ve made a mistake 😂

You have simultaneous equations so try rearranging the second equation in terms of a then substituting it into the top equation

Yeah I know its simultaneous equations, but I don't get what you're saying. ?

Factorize and make "a" the subject of the first equation.
Then, substitute this into the second one, and solve for "b".
Or make "b" the subject in the second one, and substitute into first one.

There are other ways as well. It's basically a simultaneous equation

Rearrange for A, sub A in to the top equation is what they are meaning I think. Do you know how to calculate the inverse of a matrix?

No xD. I've only had two lessons on them, and we have mainly been doing multiplying matrices and a few simultaneous equations with matrices

Ah, ha! Rearrange the second equation to make a the subject and then substitute into the first.

Then they'll want you to substitute in for a and rearrange 0
