Solve the matrix equation AX =B for X using:

A= [ 2 -3] B= [4 ]
[ 1 5] [2 ]

(theres a blank space between the 4 and the 2)

• Finite Math -

I found the inverse of A to be

5/13 3/13
-1/13 2/13

so
A-1 A X = A-1</sup B

X =

│ 5/13 3/13││4│
│-1/13 2/13││2│

=
│2│
│0│

• Finite Math -

that doesn't look like I intended.

let's try that again

so
A-1 A X = A-1 B

X =

│ 5/13 3/13││4│
│-1/13 2/13││2│

=
│2│
│0│
