Module #5 - Doing Math in R

The assignment for this module called to interpret two matrices with the following structure by finding their inverses and determinants:

  A <- matrix(1:100, nrow=10)
  B <- matrix(1:1000, nrow=10)

The functions were unsuccessful for both matrices for different reasons. The determinant of 0 for matrix A indicates that it is a singular, degenerate, matrix which does not have an inverse. Matrix B is unable to resolve an inverse or determinant because it does not have square dimensions.
