Using non numeric in Matrix
Hi All,
I hope someone can help. I am trying to solve a matrix problem with non numerics and I can't work it out. Obviously it will take numbers but if I try to enter "k" it tells me it's an error. In fact struggling to find a way of doing it caused the Prime to reset and enter Exam mode! Can anyone help? Thanks in advance Jacqueline

RE: Using non numeric in Matrix
Hi Jacqueline,
I'm not exactly sure what you are doing wrong but here are some tips: Make sure you are in the CAS, not Home. Don't use the matrix writer (shift 4), instead, use the matrix template which you can access with this key: 1507232037.png (Size: 2.24 KB / Downloads: 61) then pick the 6th position over on the top row: Also make sure the variables you are using are not already defined: shift/mem/user variables and shift/mem/cas vars. If you still can't get it, post a screen shot of your input or cut and paste the input into a reply. Road

Hi Roadrunner!
Thank a MILLION for your help. It's got to be as obvious as anything that I don't have a clue what I'm doing. Thanks for your advice  I might actually end up passing the high school maths I failed as a teenager! Cheers Jacqueline
