Anyone know a good site that explains matrices, no solutions, infite, etc?

    Hello everyone, Anyone know any good tutorials that can explain to me how i can perform the following:

    Start with the Ax part. What does Ax mean, can you describe?

    Can you find a link with the determinant of the coefficient matrix?

    Well A is a matrix and x = <x,y,z> if its a 3x3; when b is the value of the matrix. TD, i found lots of homework problems but no solutions :(

    Have you seen the concept 'rank'? If the rank of the coefficient matrix is equal to the rank of the augemented matrix, then the system Ax = B has solutions.

    Link with the determinant: if det(A) = 0 and A is an n x n matrix, then rank(A) < n, or: A is a singular matrix. If det(A) =! 0, then A is a regular matrix and its rank is n.
