Specifically augmented matrices
how augmented lol
like discrete/finite math
if you post a question we can help you better, if possible
I tried that and no one responded lol
well, there are a few answerers and alot of questioners soo, what was the question?
your trying to make pretty matrixes in this thing aitncha
I'm trying to find the negative indicator to this matrix: 4 4 0 1 0 0 0 1 4 1 3 0 1 0 0 1 2 3 3 0 0 1 0 1 -1 -1 -1 0 0 0 1 0
I think that it is in the first column, but which 4 is it?
gonna have to do some reasearch :) what is a negative indicator?
or rather, how are they determined?
you look at the bottom row to see which number is most negative, if there is a tie then you go to the most left number. then you divide the other numbers in that row by 1, and which ever is the smallest is the indicator
which is the point that you pivot around to make all the other numbers in that column zero
how do you tell which number is most negative?
umm, just which ever number is the smallest
so we have 3 -1s in the bottom row here right?
correct, so then since there is a tie for the most negative you choose the one furthest to the left
dividing the number in the row by 1? or by row1?
sorry you divide 1 by the other numbers in the column that the most negative number is in. so it would be like 1/4, 1/4, and 1/2.
ok.... then what :)
then the smallest of those numbers (1/4, 1/4, and 1/2) is the indicator. but there isnt one that is the smallest
If you don't understand (because I know I'm not explainging this well) you don't have to helping me, I'm sure I will figure it out :)
im perfer helping by osmosis :) just trying to get the juices flowing so that you can solve something you already know...
so you dont divide the 1 by the -1 do you?
nope, just the numbers above it
does the least number work like it did in the bottom and more up or down?
yes, i think
sounds plausible to me.... should we go up or down :)
is there a deeper question that this negative indicator will answer? or aare we simply trying to locate it for posterity?
Haha yes, there is a much deeper question
keep secrets are ya lol
so what is the overall questionthat needs to be answered :)
In an article on the sociology of conflict, the author proposes a game in which a member of a race visits a country in which some natives are pro-green, some indifferent, and some anti-gree. The green visitor, unable to determine which group a native is from, has three options: act appeasing, except civilty but not fight for for it, and expect civilty and fight for it if he doesnt get it.
Then is give the matrix that I gave at the beginning. What is the visitor's optimum strategy, and what is the value of the game?
so similar to this material? http://people.hofstra.edu/stefan_waner/RealWorld/Summary9.html
well; you might make better sense of it than me, so i hope it helps :)
