To determine

To find:

The values of a and b for which the matrices A=[341a] and B=[b415] are equal.

Explanation

Approach:

Two matrices A and B are said to be equal if the matrices have the same dimensions and each element of A is equal to the corresponding element of B

Calculation:

Compare the two given matrices A=[341a] and B=[b415].

The value corresponding to the element a from the matrix B is 5
