The production matrix X can be found by X=AX+D or more directly:

`X=(I-A)^(-1)D` where I is the appropriate identity matrix.

We have `A=([.4,0,.06],[0,.8,.02],[0,.2,.88])` and `D=([1],[3],[5])`

`I-A=([.6,0,-.06],[0,.2,-.02],[0,-.2,.12])`

`(I-A)^(-1)=([5/3,1,1],[0,6,1],[0,10,10])`

`(I-A)^(-1)D=([5/3,1,1],[0,6,1],[0,10,10])([1],[3],[5])`

`=([29/3],[23],[80])`

----------------------------------------------------------------

The production matrix is `([29/3],[23],[80])`
