How would one write a matrix from the following set of data?
Quite frankly, I don't understand the subject in the least and I'd appreciate any help that you can give. Thank you!
6. Answer the following 3 part question to the best of your ability:
A high school basketball coach helps the four seniors on the team set goals for their season for each game. The seniors' goals are below:
Write a matrix that represents the game goals for the four seniors:
Will: 2 3-pointers, 10 free throws, 6 steals
Colin: 4 3-pointers, 8 free throws, 3 steals
Larry: 3 3-pointers, 4 free throws, 2 steals
Timmy: 6 3-pointers, 2 free throws, 1 steal
a) Write a matrix that represents the game goals for the four seniors.
b) If there were 12 games in the season, write a matrix that represents their season goals.
c) How did you change your matrix in part "a" to part "b"?
The matrix is just a mathematical way of writing the table you provided:
The rows correspond to the players, and the columns to the number of 3pt shots, free throws, and steals.
For a 12 game season, you would multiply all entries by 12. (Will should make 24 3pt shots over the course of 12 games, etc...)
This is represented by `12A=12[(2,10,6),(4,8,3),(3,4,2),(6,2,1)]=[(24,120,72),(48,96,36),(36,48,24),(72,24,12)]`
