What is a vector?

A vector is a mathematical object that has both magnitude and direction. It is represented by an arrow, where the length of the arrow represents its magnitude and the direction of the arrow represents its direction.

What is a matrix?

A matrix is a rectangular array of numbers or variables arranged in rows and columns. It is used to represent data or perform mathematical operations such as addition, subtraction, and multiplication.

How do you prove that two vectors are equal?

To prove that two vectors are equal, you need to show that they have the same magnitude and direction. This can be done by comparing the components of the vectors, or by using geometric methods such as vector addition and subtraction.

What is the dot product of two vectors?

The dot product of two vectors is a scalar quantity that represents the product of their magnitudes and the cosine of the angle between them. It is used to calculate the angle between two vectors, determine if they are perpendicular, and perform projections.

How do you prove that two matrices are equal?

To prove that two matrices are equal, you need to show that they have the same dimensions and that each corresponding element is equal. This can be done by comparing each element of the matrices or by using algebraic methods such as matrix multiplication and addition.
