To make your task easier, the following information about the encoding matrix is given: Position 1,1 in the encoding matrix is an even number The decoding matrix only contains integers Position 1,1 in the encoding matrix is the negative of the number in position 1,1 in the decoding matrix Modulo arithmetic hasn't been used My coded message is: 91, -38, 137, -59, 145, -59 How would I go about solving it; I know that E^-1 x EA will decipher the message. But would I place it in a 2x2 or a 3x3 matrix? How would I work out the encoding matrix? Thank you in advance!
