Abstract

This contrived project is based on a problem from Harshbarger and Yocco's College Algebra textbook. As with other projects, students use the letters in their own name to customize the project. They are given information about sources of nutrients in dog biscuits and the amounts of each source in the different types of biscuits. Using this information, students formulate matrices and then multiply them to total amount of each nutrient in the different types of biscuits.
