Question about a matrix of vector element ratios

  1. Jun 19, 2012 #1
    if I have square matrix A whose decimal elements [tex] a_{i,j} = \frac{v_i}{v_j} [/tex] how do I find (or approximate) the vector that would produce the matrix elements. what's a good way to do that?

    i guess you can scale the vector however you want and it'll still produce the same matrix..

    Consider what summing the matrix elements over i produces.
