As you might know we had the Dance, Figure Skating, and Gymnatstics question for homework yesterday...
We continued from this question that Mr.Max made up
looking at the information from yesterday, ( on yesterdays post ) we can fill this out
So, We have created a transition matrix
Important things about/to identify a transition matrix.
- 100% as a row sum ( probably) and it may be of 1% because you rounded the number)
- row & column match identically ( DFG, and DFG)
- its square ( n x n configuration )
So the question we had to find out from this matrix what
You are the communtiy recreation corrdinatora.) Use matrix operations & data given to predict upcoming trends in the distribution of activities
b.) You are aware that currently
F D G
12% 27% 61%
represent attendance in each activity
Show data for the first three years and then answer question a.)
1.) LOAD your "initial condition" or "initial state" matrix as [A] in a 1 x n form
A= [0.27 o.12 0.61] ( make sure you put them in the right order (DFG))
Then we randomly, and suddenly got way off topic and started to talk about the delicious and very apparently appetizing Scotish delicasy known as haggis
Basically to just briefly talk about what it is ... its a sheeps stomach, filled with heart, liver, lungs, minced with onion, oatmeal, suet, spices, and salt, mixed with stock, traditionally served with turnip and potatoes,
If you have any other questions about this unusual form of food...talk to mr.max
Oh and by the way, we didn't look at it because Mr.Max likes it...
Ok back to work
make [B] into a matrices that represents this:
now multiply [A] x [B] and our new distribution is
Hint: if [row] x[transitsion]^ big number equals [row] x[transitsion]^ big numer +1 then you did it right ... if not then try a bigger numer
I'm not finished so there will be more probably tommorrow morning
- We got a new handout
- A-16 Ex 6 Transition Matrices
- A-17 #4 Car/Vans/SUVs
Also it is probably important to know that there is a class from winnipeg that will be joined with our blog, ( there is a like on the side of this page i think or you can access it by this link) and they will be teamed up with one of us and we are to do a project with them.... no big rush yet, just letting you know.
We have not started mental math yet either
