Step 1
The given matrices are,
C=[210034021] and D=[ab0.400.20.800.40.6]
Step 2
Now multiply the matrices C and D as shown below.
CD=[210034021][ab0.400.20.800.40.6]
=[2a+0+02b0.2+00.8+0.8+00+0+000.6+1.60+2.42.40+0+000.4+0.40+1.60.6]
=[2a2b0.20010001]
Step 3
Now equate the matrix CD to the identity matrix I and obtain the values of a and b as follows.
CD=I
[2a2b0.20010001]=[100010001]
Two matrices are equal , only if the corresponding elements are equal.
2a=1
a=0.5
and
2b0.2=0
b=0.1
Step 4
Therefore, the CD = I is true for a = 0.5 and b =0.1.
