1. Homework Statement

2. Homework Equations
I think it may have to do with inverse matrices or multiplication using the identity matrix

3. The Attempt at a Solution

I got the inverse of...

1,-2, 2, 2,-3
3,-5, 6, 2,-4
2,-2, 5,-4, 4
1,-3, 1, 7,-8
3,-4, 7, 0, 2

as...

-6,-14,25,20,-7
2,-13,19,14,-5
4, -2, 1, 0, 0
0, -1, 1, 1, 0
-1, 2 ,-3,-2, 1

and I premultiplied that to...

87, 57, 10,117,-101
208,232,133,330,-146
83,297,235,229, 116
154,-58,-97,112,-245
240,382,278,370, 092

But nothing really seems to make sense. Thanks if you can help!

It looks to me like it's one big giant matrix and you'd have to do the row operations to get the first 5 columns in the identity format and see what that does to the last 5 columns.
Are you looking for the norm of columns 6-10? The question isn't entirely clear to me.

Yes, you have to do raw, direct calculations. But the semi-identity matrix will make it easier
