Algebra 2 questions
Pohatu: Uniter of Stone posted a topic in Completely Off TopicI was recently learning matrix addition/subtraction in Algebra 2, and then we started learning about matrix multiplication. Immediately, my brain exploded. It made no sense. It makes sense now, but I still have a question- Why does matrix multiplication work the way it does, instead of straight across like matrix multiplication? I tried searching google, but all that popped up for me were math help websites that explained how it worked but not why. If anyone is good with matrices here, could you answer my question: why does matrix multiplication work in such a weird way, and why can't you just multiply the numbers in the same locations like you would when you add or subtract? Thanks.
