The Concept of a Matrix

Explain the concept of a matrix

Definition:

A matrix is an array or an Orderly arrangement of objects in rows and columns.

Each object in the matrix is called an element (entity).

Consider the following table showing the number of students in each stream in each form.

Form | I | II | III | IV |

Stream A | 38 | 35 | 40 | 28 |

Stream B | 36 | 40 | 34 | 39 |

Stream C | 40 | 37 | 36 | 35 |

From the above table, if we enclose the numbers in brackets without changing their arrangement, then a matrix is farmed, this can be done by removing the headings and the bracket enclosing the numbers (elements) and given a name (normally a capital letter).

Nowthe above information can be presented in a matrix form as

Any matrix has rows and columns but sometimes you may find a matrix with only row without Colum or only column without row.

In the matrix A above, the numbers 38, 36 an 40 form the first column and 38, 35, 40 and 28 form the first row.

Matrix A above has three (3) rows and four (4) columns.

In the matrix A, 34 is the element (entity) in the second row and third column while 28 lies in the first row and fourth column. The plural form of matrix is matrices.

Normallymatrices are named by capital letters and their elements by small letters which represent real numbers.

**Order of a matrix (size of matrix)**
The order of a matrix or size of a matrix is given by the number of its rows and the number of its columns.

So if A has m rows and n columns, then the order of matrix is m x n.

It is important to note that the order of any matrix is given by stating the number of its rows first and then the number of its columns.

*Types of matrices:*
The following are the common types of matrices:-

Matrices of order up to 2 X 2

Add matrices of order up to 2 X 2

When adding or subtracting one matrix from another, the corresponding elements (entities) are /added or subtracted respectively.

This being the case, we can only perform addition and subtraction of matrices with the same orders.

Additive identity matrix.

If M is any square matrix, that is a matrix with order mxm or nxn and Z is another matrix with the same order as m such that

M+ Z= Z+M = M then Z is the additive identity matrix.

The additive inverse of a matrix.

If A and B are any matrices with the same order such that A+B = Z, then it means that either A is an additive inverse of B or B is an additive inverse of A that is B=-A or A= -B

Two Matrices of order up to 2 X 2

Multiply two matrices of order up to 2 X 2

*Multiplication of Matrix by another matrix:*

AB is the product of matrices A and B while BA is the product of matrix B and A.

In AB, matrix A is called a pre-multiplier because it comes first while matrix B is called the post multiplier because it comes after matrix A.

**Rules of finding the product of matrices;**

- The pre –multiplier matrix is divided row wise, that is it is divided according to its rows.
- The post multiplier is divided according to its columns.
- Multiplication is done by taking an element from the row and multiplied by an element from the column.
- In rule (iii) above, the left most element of the row is multiplied by the top most element of the column and the right most element from the row is multiplied by the bottom most element of the column and their sums are taken:

Therefore it can be concluded that matrix by matrix multiplication is only possible if the number of columns in the pre-multiplier is equal to the number of rows in the post multiplier.

**Inverse of matrices**

**Definition**: If A is a square matrix and B is another matrix with the same order as A, then B is the inverse of A if AB=BA=I where I is the identity matrix.

Thus AB=BA=I means either A is the inverse of B or B is the inverse of A.

Where B=A

^{-1}, that is B is the inverse of matrix A
Since we need the unknown matrix B, we can solve for p and q by using equations (i) and (iii) and we solve for r and s using equations (ii) and (iv)

Matrices and Transformations

Definition: A transformation in a plane is a mapping which moves an object from one position to another within the plane. Figures on the plane can also be shifted from one position by a transformation.

A new position after a transformation on is called the

**.***image*
Examples of transformations are (i) Reflection (ii) Rotation (iii) Enlargement (iv) Translation.

Any Point P(X, Y) into P¹(X¹,Y¹) by Pre-Multiplying (áµ¡áµ§) with a Transformation Matrix T

Transform any point P(X, Y) into P¹(X¹,Y¹) by pre-multiplying (áµ¡áµ§) with a transformation matrix T

- Suppose a point P(x,y) in the x-y plane moves to a point P¢ (x¢,y¢) by a transformation T,

A transformation in which the size of the image is equal that of the object is called an ISOMETRIC MAPPING.

The Matrix to Reflect a Point P(X, Y ) in the X-Axis

Apply the matrix to reflect a point P(X, Y ) in the x-axis

**Reflection**;

When you look at yourself in a mirror you seem to see your body behind the mirror. Your body is in front of the mirror as your image is behind it.

An object is reflected in the mirror to form an image which is;

- The same size as the object
- The same distance from the mirror as the object

So reflection is an example of ISOMETRIC MAPPING.

The mirror is the line of symmetry between the object and the image.

Example 24

Find the image of the point A (2,3) after reflection in the x – axes.

Solution;

Plot point A and its image A¢ such that AA¢ crosses the x – axis at B and also perpendicular to it.

For reflection AB should be the same as BA¢ i.e. AB = BA¢

From the figure, the coordinates of A ¢ are A¢ (2,-3). So the image of A (2,3) under reflection in the x-axis is A¢ (2,-3)

Normally the letter M is used to denote reflection and thus Mx means reflection in the x – axis.

So Mx(2,3) =- (2,-3).

Where Mx means reflection in the x – axis and My means reflection in the y-axis.

The Matrix to Reflect a Point P(X, Y) in the Y-Axis

Apply the matrix to reflect a point P(X, Y) in the Y-Axis

Example 25

Find the image of B(3,4) under reflection in the y- axis.

**Solution:**

From My (x.y)= (-x,y)

My (3 ,4 ) =( -3,4)

Therefore the image of B(3,4) is

**B'(-3,4)**.

*Reflection in the line y = x.*
The line y=x makes an angle 45

^{0 }with x and y axes. It is the line of symmetry for the angle YOX formed by two axis. By using isosceles triangle properties, reflection of the point (1,0) in the line y=x will be ( 0,1) while the reflection of (0,2) in the line y=x will be ( 2, 0) it can be noticed that the coordinates are exchanging positions. Hence the reflection of the point (x,y) in the line y=x is ( y,x).
Where M

_{y =x}_{}means reflection in the line y=x.
Example 26

Find the image of the point A(1,2) after reflection in the line y = x . Draw a sketch.

*Reflection in the line*

*y = -x*
The reflection of the point B(x,y) in the line y = -x is B'(-y,-x).

Example 27

Find the image of B (3,4) after reflection in the line y=-x followed by another reflection in the line y=0.Draw a sketch.

Solution;

Reflection of B in the line y=-x is B'(-4,-3). The line y=0 is the x – axis. So reflection (-4,-3) in the x-axis is (-4,3)

Therefore the image of B (3,4) is

**B****¢(-4,3).**

*The image of a point P(x,y) when reflected in the line making an angleÎ±***.**

*with positive x-axis and passing through the origin*
If the line passes through the origin and makes an angle a with x – axis in the positive direction, then its equation is y= xtanÎ± where tanÎ±is the slope of the line.

Consider the following diagram.

But OPQ is a right angled triangle.

So x = OP CosÎ² and y = OPSinÎ² .

Again OP¢R is a right angled triangle and the angle P¢QR = a -Î² + a- Î²+ Î², this is due to the fact that reflection is an isometric mapping.

Now the angle P¢OR = 2 a-Î², then

It follows therefore that if M is a reflection in the line inclined at a, then

Example 28

Find the image of the point A (1, 2) after a reflection in the line y = x.

Example 29

Find the image of B (3,4) after reflection in the line y = -x followed by another reflection in the line y = 0.

But the line y = 0 has 0 slope because it is the x – axis,

Example 30

Find the equation of the line y = 2x + 5 after being reflected in the line y = x,

**Solution:**

The line y = x has a slope 1

So tan a = 1 which means a = 45

^{0}
To find the image of the line y = 2x + 5, we choose at least two points on it and find their images, then we use the image points to find the equation of the image line.

Now y = 2x + 5

The points (0,5) and (1,7) lie on the line

So the image line is the line passing through (5,0) and (7,1) and it is obtained as follows;

Exercise 5

Self Practice.

- Point Q (-4,3) is reflected in the y – axis. Find its image coordinates.
- Reflect the point (5,4) in the line y = x
- Find the image of the point (1,2) after a reflection in the line y = x followed by another reflection in the line y = -x.
- Find the equation of the line y = 3x -1 after being reflected in the line x + y = 0.

A Matrix Operator to Rotate any Point P( X, Y ) Through 90° 180°, 270° and 360° about the Origin

Use a matrix operator to rotate any point P( X, Y ) through 90° 180°, 270° and 360° about the Origin

**Rotation:**

**A rotation is a transformation which moves a point through a given angle about a fixed point.**

*Definition;*
Rotation is an isometric mapping and it is usually denoted by R.

Therefore RÎ¸ means rotation of an object through an angleÎ¸.

In the xy plane, whenÎ¸ismeasured in the clockwise direction it is negative and when it is measured in the anticlockwise direction it is positive.

Example 31

Find the image of the point P(1,0) after a rotation through 90

^{0}about the origin in the anti clockwise direction.^{0}about the origin it will be on the y – axis. Since P is 1unit from O, P¢ is also 1 unit from O, the coordinates of P¢ (0,1) are P¢ (0,1). Therefore R

_{900}(1,0) = (0,1).

Example 32

Find the image of the point B (4,2) after a rotation through 90

^{0}about the origin in the anticlockwise direction.**Solution;**

Consider the following figure,

Exercise 6

Find the matrix of rotation through

- 90
^{0}about the origin - 45
^{0}about the origin - 270
^{0 }about the origin

Find the image of the point (1,2) under rotation through 180

^{0}ant –clockwise about the origin.
Find the image of the point (-2,1) under rotation through 270

^{0}clockwise about the origin
Find the image of (1,2) after rotation of -90

^{0}.
Find the image of the line passing through points a (-2,3) and B(2,8) after rotation through 90

^{0}clockwise about the origin

*General formula for rotation*
Consider the following sketch,

Example 33

Find the image of the point (1,2) under a rotation through 180

^{0}anticlockwise
Therefore the image of (1, 2) after rotation through 180

^{0}anticlockwise is (-1,-2).
Example 34

Find the image of the point (5,2) under rotation of 90

^{0}followed by another rotation of 180^{0}anticlockwise.**Solution:**

Therefore the image of (5,2) under rotation of 90

^{0 }followed by another rotation of 180^{0}anticlockwise is (2,-5) .**Translation**

**A translation is a mapping of a point P (x, y) into P' (x', y') by the Vector (a, b) such that (x', y') = (x, y) + (a, b), translation is denoted by the letter T. So T maps a point (x, y) into x', y')**

*Definition:*
Where (x', y') = (x, y) + (a, b)

Consider the triangle OPQ whose vertices are (0,0), (3,1) and (3,0) respectively which is mapped into triangle O¢P¢Q¢ by moving it 2 units in the positive x direction and 3 units in the positive y direction

Example 35

If T is a translation by the vector (4,3), find the image of (1, 2) under this translation.

Example 36

A translation T maps the point (-3, 2) into (4, 3). Find where (a) T maps the origin (b) T maps the point (7, 4).

Example 37

Find the translation vector which maps the point (6,-6) into (7,16).

**Solution**

Given that (x, y) = (6,-6) and (x¢, y¢) = (7,16), (a, b) =?

From T (x, y) = (x, y) + (a, b) = (x', y'),

then (7,16) = (6,-6)+(a,b) which means a=7-6 = 1 and b=16+6 = 22. Therefore translation vector

*(a,b) = (1,22).*
The Enlargement Matrix E in Enlarging Figures

Use the enlargement matrix E in enlarging figures

**Definition**: Enlargement is the transformation which magnifies an object such that its image is proportionally increases on decreased in size by some factor k. The general matrix of enlargement

Example 38

Find the image of the square with vertices O(0,0), A (1,0), B (1,1) and C (0,1) under the

Example 39

Find the image of (6, 9) under enlargement by the matrix

Example 40

Draw the image of a unit circle with center O (0,0) under

Now the images of these points are (0,3), (3,0), (0,-3), (-3,0) and other points respectively, where the centre remains (0,0) and the radius becomes 3 units.

I n the figure above, the circle with radius 1 unit and its image with radius 3 units C

_{1}and C_{2}respectively are shown.

*Linear Transformation:***Definition:**

For any transformation T, any two vectors U and V and any real number t, T is said to be a linear transformation if and only if

**and**

*T(t U) = tT(U)*

*T (U+V) = T(U) + T(V)*
Example 41

Show that the rotation by 90

^{0}about O(0,0) is a linear trans formation

*Solution*
Let U=(U

_{1},U_{2}) and V =(V_{1}, V_{2}) be any two vectors in the plane and t be any real number
To show that R90

^{0}is the linear transformation we must show that
R90

^{0}(tU)= t R90^{0}(U) and
R90

^{0}(U + V) = R90^{0}(U) + R90^{0}(V)
Therefore, since R90

^{0}(U) + R90^{0}(V) = R90^{0}(U+V) and R90^{0}(tU)= t R90^{0}(U), then R90^{0}is a linear trans formation.
Example 42

Suppose that T is a linear transformation such that

T(U) = (1,-2), T(V) = (-3,-1) for any vectors U and V, find

(a) T(U+ V) (b) T(8U) (c) T(3U -2V)

*Solution*
(a)Since T is a linear Transformation then

T( U+ V) = T(U) + T(V)
