(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

determine the conditions on a b c and d such that the matrix

a b

c d

will be row equivalent to the given matrix:

1 0

0 1

and

1 0

0 0

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

I have no idea what its asking, I mean on no. 1:

a = 1 b = 0 c = 0 and d =1

but what does that mean? I tried taking the resultant

for the first one would be 1(1) - 0(0) = 1

which would be ad - bc = 1 ??
