two matrices are normally considered equal only if they are identical. In other words, every element in the matrix must be equal to the corresponding element in the other matrix.

A polynomial of degree zero is a constant term

The grouping method of factoring can still be used when only some of the terms share a common factor A True B False

The sum or difference of p and q is the of the x-term in the trinomial

A number a power of a variable or a product of the two is a monomial while a polynomial is the of monomials

What is order of the resultant matrix AB when two matrices are multiplied and the order of the Matrix A is m n order of Matrix B is n p Also state the condition under which two matrices can be mult?

the order is m p and the matrices can be multiplied if and only if the first one (matrix A) has the same number of columns as the second one (matrix B) has rows i.e)is Matrix A has n columns, then Matrix B MUST have n rows.Equal Matrix: Two matrices A=|Aij| and B=|Bij| are said to be equal (A=B) if and only if they have the same order and each elements of one is equal to the corresponding elements of the other. Such as A=|1 2 3|, B=|1 2 3|. Thus two matrices are equal if and only if one is a duplicate of the other.

Is matrix multiplication commutative?

No. In general, if A and B are square matrices of the same size, A times B is not equal to B times A.Write down two random 2 x 2 matrices, multiply them together in both orders, and see what you get.
