ANS: In order to multiply, the number columns in the first array must
equal the number of rows in the second. The size of the result is equal to
the number of rows in the first array by the number of columns in the
second.
[A] [C]YES, result will be 3 2
[B] [D]NO
[C] [B]YES, result will be 2 4
4. Which LabVIEW function should be used to multiply arrays?

ANS: A B function, located at

Function Palette / Mathematics Group / Linear Algebra Group /
A B Function
5. When trying to solve simultaneous equations, is a large condition number a

good thing or a bad thing?

ANS: A bad thinga large condition number suggests the solution may be
subject to round-off and truncation errors. A condition number near 1 is
ideal.
6. When trying to solve simultaneous equations, what does a determinant of zero
on the coefficient matrix tell you?
ANS: The coefficient matrix is singular; no solution is possible.
