## Matrix+Matrix

Situation puzzles (sometimes called lateral thinking puzzles) are ones where you need to ask lots of yes or no questions to figure out what happened in the situation. These are good puzzles for groups where one person knows the puzzle and answers the questions.

 Puzzle ID: #47751 Fun: (1.91) Difficulty: (1.78) Category: Situation Submitted By: quizwizAhn

1. The math teacher gave Pat two matrices and told her to add them. But she said she couldn't add them even though she learned how to do matrix addition the day before. The funny thing is that the teacher said that she did a good job. Why?

2. The math teacher then gave Mat two matrices and told him to add them. This time, Mat added them and showed the results to the teacher. But the teacher looked at him strangely. Why?

 unklemyke Aug 16, 2010 Wouldn't this fit more readily into the math category? Seems to me that you need some math skills here to get the correct answer. AlexRi3er Aug 21, 2010 It doesn't require any computation, and you don't even know the figures. Good Teaser quizwizAhn Sep 07, 2010 Well, don't blame me! I put it in the math category at first, but the editors said it fits better at situation. kittygirl19 Dec 26, 2010 Wow!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! bookworm91 Dec 30, 2010 Yay, my math skills paid off finally. Nerine Jan 06, 2011 Don't know about matrices (never heard of them)... but I kind of got it using different maths. You can add a lenght and length, area+area etc. but you can't add an area and a length etc. not really the same but... Maths is not my strong point 18818 Jan 08, 2011 It Is possible,But REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY complicated. Jimbo Apr 17, 2011 Firstly this hardly fits the 'situation' category and secondly, what sot of an answer is given to part 2? How can he 'somehow' do something even although it is impossible? Surely he is just incorrect and how is that a situation? quizwizAhn May 17, 2011 Jimbo, Firstly, please look at the former comments. I first submitted to the math category, but it got rejected, because the EDITORS said it fits in the situation category. So, it is NOT my fault that this teaser ended up in this category. Secondly, for part two, 'he somehow did it' MEANS that he was incorrect, since he was not supposed to be able to do it. Now, PLEASE no more of the 'category' thingy and such. kittygirl19 Jul 21, 2011 Cat was given 2 matrices.Teach asked her 2 add them. she couldn't do it though the teacher praised her. Candi7 Jun 23, 2012 Um yeah, I think we all get it without that many really's. Seriously, it isn't realy necessary. makani Jul 28, 2015 Fun teaser! I was thinking at first that Mat didn't have the self-confidence to do a matrix. The average person who does not get math is not going to understand how to do a matrix in just 1 day.
