Which of the following is the matrix 𝐴 equals π‘Ž 𝑖𝑗, where 𝑖 equals one and 𝑗 equals one, two?

The first thing we can notice is that we’re multiplying 𝑖 and 𝑗. The set of 𝑖 is one, and the set of 𝑗 is one, two. Set 𝑖 is one by one, and set 𝑗 is one by two. This means that the solution matrix will be a one by two. Options a and b are two by ones; they don’t fit.

Now we have to look closely to see element order. 𝑗 is one and then two. That means the correct matrix will have the 𝑗 values in the order one, two. The correct matrix is π‘Ž one, one; π‘Ž one, two.
