As far as I know, matrices cannot be divided, you have to multiply one matrix by the inverse of the other...I believe.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

However, I am converting MatLab code into ANSI C and MatLab apparently divides two matrices. An example is the following...

>>A=[1.5708 1.5708];

B=[0.4937 0.7652];

A/B

ans =

2.3846

I have no idea how MatLab generated this answer. I try to find the inverse of the second matrix, but since it is a non-square matrix, MatLab denies my request. Can anyone aid me in figuring out how such an answer was calculated? Thank you in advance.
