Let ABC be a triangle. Let D be the point on BC such that BD/DC = t and E the point on AC such that AE/EC = t; and let F be the mid-point of AD. Using position vectors, show that B, F, E are collinear, and find the value of BF/FE. 3. Let ABC be a triangle, and let D, E, F be points on the sides BC, CA, AB, respectively, such that BD/DC = CE/EA = AF/FB. Prove that the centroids of the triangles ABC and DEF coincide. 4. Let ABCD be a quadrilateral, and let M 1, M 2, M 3, M 4 be the mid-points of the sides AB, BC, CD, DA, respectively.

Moreover, positive integral powers of a square matrix A can be satisfactorily defined by: A r = A x A x A x ... x A (r a positive integer). 3 For A E Fn Xn and r, s positive integers, (i) A r AS = A r + s , (ii) (AT = A rs • The next two propositions give further important positive properties of matrix multiplication. They may be proved by the standard basic method of comparing types and (i, k)th entries of matrices alleged to be equal. 4 (i) A(B+C) = AB+AC (ii) (A+B)C = AC+BC (A E F/ xm ; B, C E F m xn).

One readily sees in any such case the sum A + B is obtainable by adding "blockwise". g. in the above specific case It is equally obvious that one can work blockwise in multiplying a partitioned matrix by a scalar or in subtracting two identically partitioned matrices of the same type. A rather less obvious fact is that, provided certain details are in order, two partitioned matrices can be correctly multiplied by treating the blocks as though they were entries. e. if there are vertical partitions in A after the ath, bth, cth, ...
