what must be true to add matrices together?
they must be the same size
how might you probe that 2 matrices are inverses of each other?
if you multiply them by each other and get an identity matrix and get multiplicative inverse matrices
what makes an absolute value equation shrink?
a fraction less than one before the abs. val. box
what makes an abs.val. box stretch?
a whole number greater than 1 before the box
dependent system
lines are equal, cross all same points
inconsistent system
it doesn't cross anywhere
independent system
crosses one point only
