Summary

This is the last video in this series for Matrices 1 and the Further Maths Units 3 and 4 course. Looking at how we can apply Matrices in a more real world sense, I take a look at transition matrices. Using examples from the Cambridge Further Maths textbook, I look at owning two car rental locations and the movement of cars between them. There are a number of worked examples which are fully explained with reference to the theory.
