Step 1
a) Choose the rows to represent the branches and columns to represent the types of boxes.
Step 2
$\left[\begin{array}{cc}100& 400\\ 200& 300\\ 150& 250\end{array}\right]$
Step 3
Choose the rows to represent the the types of boxes and columns to represent the branches.
$\left[\begin{array}{ccc}100& 200& 150\\ 400& 300& 250\end{array}\right]$
Step 4
b) Two matrices have different order so they can never be equal.
Step 5
Conclusion:
a)$\left[\begin{array}{cc}100& 400\\ 200& 300\\ 150& 250\end{array}\right]$ and $\left[\begin{array}{ccc}100& 200& 150\\ 400& 300& 250\end{array}\right]$
b)Two matrices have different order so they can never be equal.
