Hi Lisa, to be honest with you, the phrasing on the question could be a bit more precise. What is meant in b) is: You multiply two incompatible matrices. Because of course, matrix multiplication of matrices A * B, requires A to have dimensions of (mxn) and B to be of size (nxm) for them to be compatible. This of course means that if m and n are not equal, the matrices are of different sizes, multiplying them however, requires no recycling. In addition, the answer in a) should read : You multiple a matrix by a vector, when the two are incompatible For instance, multiplying a mxn matrix by a nx1 vector requires no recycling. Thanks for asking the question and sorry for the confusion! Best, 365 Eli
