If I have a problem like this
Find 3XY. Where X and Y are two different matrices, am I supposed to do the scaler multiplication first (multiplying 3 to matrix X) or am I supposed to multiply X and Y and THEN multiply 3 to the product matrix of X and Y?

That shouldn't matter, should it? Shouldn't you get the same answer?

The number you hope for at the moment you throw the dice, is the one you'll want to keep.

it'll be easier if you multiply the matrices first, then multiply your answers by 3

hmm i used to know how to do this 2 years ago.... damn

Multiplication is commutative. You can multiply them in any order and you'll get the same answer. As long as you know how to multiply the matrices, you're set. Just ignore the 3 until the end, that's what I do.

Actually, matrix multiplication isn't commutative... X Y =/= Y X

but it IS associative, 3 (X Y) = (3 X) Y, so TS, you can do any of the things you mentioned and get the same result.

Matrix multiplication ain't commutative- XY =/= YX inherently. Can be in special cases (

But yeah, you can multiply X or Y by 3 before dealing with the matrices, or leave the 3 out and multiply the result by 3. I'd go for the latter myself, smaller numbers mean less chance to mess up, but both would get you to the same answer providing you did it right.

That sounds right.

Do the matrices first, then multiply by 3, it will be easier.
