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.

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?

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.

It doesn't require any computation, and you don't even know the figures. Good Teaser

Well, don't blame me! I put it in the math category at first, but the editors said it fits better at situation.

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

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?

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.
