comment How can I resolve a matrix of 13 rows and 40 columns?
Try online matrix calculators. There most certainly should be some.

comment Derivative of a weird Integral and Derivative of a Function
Hi Teckizt. You have to notice a pattern for the derivative part. First derivative is $1/(x-1)^2$. The third is $((3-2x)x^2)/(x-1)^2$. The four is $((4-3x)x^3)/(x-1)^2$. Notice the pattern?

comment How to prove inequality
So is $d=3$? or $a,b,c,d$ are any elements of $\mathbb{N}$?

Dammit Marvis, you beat me to it haha.

@froggie Yes you are correct. The only is unnecessary there.

comment Eigenvalues of a matrix $A$ such that $ A^2=0$.
@preeti It will be diagonalizable with entries from $R$ only if the $nxn$ matrix is symmetric with $n$ distinct eigenvalues.

comment A First Course in Linear Algebra Text
Hi Nunoxic. I added Strang. I think that one complements well with engineering applications. EDIT: I also see that you chose it too!

Haha, nice few people recognize the reference.

comment Series Solution Near Ordinary Points for Second Order Differential Equations
Thanks Jon. The only reason why I got stuck was because the simplification threw me off. It was late and I didn't even think to simplify (in fact I thought it was already simplified). Anyway, thanks again.

comment Please help with derivative question
Deniz, once you get the answer that you were looking for, please accept the answer with the "check" sign to the left of the question. This not only gives you a higher acceptance rate, but it also gives credit to the people giving the best answer.

comment Prove that you can form at most $n$ same sized intersections of $m$ subsets of an $n$ element set.
Ah I see. Thank you. Also, can you define semi-definite and definite.

Hi Austin. I'm a little confused on your terminology. Could you please elaborate from "Letting M...".

Thanks! Just one question, what does the ∪iCi at the end mean? I'm not sure I understand that notation.

That's one way to say it.

comment Using linear algebra, how is the Binet formula (for finding the nth Fibonacci number) derived?
I'm truly, really sorry, but I'm not sure if I'm able to follow you.

I haven't done eigenvectors yet (I do that in about a week in my L.A. course). Is there a way to derive all that without using those concepts?

Oh duh. Oh my I feel very dumb now.

Ah I see. Is there a proof to that?

comment The rank of a linear transformation/matrix
Again, thanks so much. For some reason the mn thing was throwing me off a great deal (I had read it somewhere online and for the life of me couldn't find what it meant). But apparently it has nothing to do with the rank-nullity theorem, so I believe it's all good now.
