This is in the matrix section so I am assuming we have to use one but have no idea what they want?!

The easiest way to answer that question is to look at the determinant of the matrix.

determinent of the matrix would be

[ .9 * .998] - [.002 * .10] correct?

[ .9 * .998] - [.002 * .10] correct?

Yes. What is that equal to and what does it tell you?

= .898 .. not really sure what that is telling me though. honestly my differential equations teacher is so bad that i have to learn everything on google. pretty sad when your 5,000 dollars in tuition is going towards research you have to do on your own on google to learn everything but hey.

im assuming that since .898 is so close to .90 or 90% that its saying things are going to be stable. This right?

also how do you get a vector out of those numbers?
