Use Nate’s matrix N from exercise 7b above. Nate knows that in the spring semester his tuition will increase by 5%, his supplies will decrease by 5%, his transportation will remain the same, his textbook costs will remain the same, and his fees will increase by 10%. Write a percent change matrix that you could multiply by matrix N to yield a 1 x 4 matrix that will list his total education-related expenses for each month. Then determine that final matrix.
