Quizz matrices
 Introduction 
This module contains 17 training exercises on basic notions of
matrices: multiplication, inverse, trace, rank. See
Quizz determinant for similar exercises on the determinant.
Students may use them as a training tool for a better memorization of the lesson,
while teachers may put them into a work sheet with activated time limit, so that
proficiency can be tested.
