Here it goes. I'm given a few sets of 2x2 matrices but I'm given an "X" matrix. and need to solve for X. X is a 2x2 matrix. [-5 -4] X + [-9 -1] =[1 4]X [ 7 9] [ 0 -8] [3 -5] One way I was thinking is this way.... Ax+B = Cx -> (C-A)x =B -> x = {(A-C)^-1 }*B Am I doing this right?

$\begin{pmatrix}-5 &-4 \\7 &9\end{pmatrix}X + \begin{pmatrix}-9 &-1 \\0 &-8\end{pmatrix} = \begin{pmatrix}1 &4 \\ 3 &-5\end{pmatrix}X$

is that what you mean?

no, that's not quite correct

$(C-A)X = B \Rightarrow X = (C-A)^{-1}B$

provided that $(C-A)^{-1}$ exists.
