Hello everyone, i've been searching in this book forever to find an example but no luck. My problem states:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Find two Elementary matrices E1 and E2 such that [tex]B = E_2E_1A[/tex]

A =

2 3

-1 8

B =

1 11

3 -24

Can someone explain to me what they want me to do?

The books says:

A -> E1A->E2E1A -> Ek .... E2E1A;

Ei denote the elementary matrix corresponding to the ith row operation. and suppose that a series of k elementary row operations is applied to an arbitrary matrix A.

THanks!
