They defined continuity for us somewhere along the lines of this
(a) Show that if A is a 2 × 2 matrix, and its two rows are identical, then det(A) = 0.
(b) Prove by induction that if A is an n × n matrix which has two identical rows, then det(A) = 0.
[Hint: expand along one of the other rows].
How would one approach this question? Part a is quite easy, though I am not sure about part b.
Okay so with parametric vector forms of lines...
I was under the impression it was x = a + lambda(v). And I though V was simply AB (given two points A and B), so to get the vector you go B-A.
But in the solutions for my practice test it has A-B. Why have they got this, and if that is correct, why?

I'm falling behind in maths. I need to catch up on lectures I've missed (due to catching up), but have trouble attending lectures since I don't understand what's going on because I've missed lectures / haven't had time to revise and understand.
So little time for anything tbh.
It's like a horrible cycle that I can't get out of, any advice anyone?
So I should skip this week's lectures as well and spend it catching up? I find myself prioritising studying for tests, so lately I've been just catching up on the upcoming test's material and not wanting to go ahead - but of course class is still speeding along with new crap while I study.
Course pack is really good. Man can't wait to start over next sem, I've learned so much, but kind have stuffed this sem.
In advance for the calculus test you probably want to focus on studying for that. Same for algebra. Then when no calculus test is coming up you should catch up on the calculus that you missed.
But maths, well I view it as two seperate courses in algebra and calculus. You treat them seperate until final exam time.
As for missing, well that's probably up to you

Why is it when given some points after finding the cross product of vectors AB and AC, you find the result distance to find the area of the parallelogram?
How does that give you the area of a parallelogram?
Okay can someone help me with finding the shortest distance d between a line and a point using vectors/projections??
These questions come up a lot and I'm having trouble doing them, so if anyone could give me a general list of steps of what to do to solve these, that would be great.
So say you get given a point - and it's said the line goes through that point, and is also parallel to a vector given, and you also get another point. They require you to find the projv/vector(the vector made by second point - first point).
Now what do you do from here to find the shortest distance between the line and the second point??
[if it would be easier for me to give a real example let me know]
I reckon draw a diagram and that'll help you out a lot - are you drawing pictures?

Yeah but it's always so hard in 3D to actually look at the diagram and have it useful
We just need to draw a rough diagram to see what projection vector to take and what lengths to use etc. So we don't need to worry about coordinates for our sketch. Just draw a line with the known point on the line, and the given point above the line, and see which projection vectors and lengths need to be taken.
So basically pictures like in this link: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vector_projection .

If in 2014, the Australias population was 23 246 692, with a growth rate of approximately 1.14%, what was the population in 2015?
Please help! What is the formula and how would you work out this question
