QUESTION: 17

Let A be an n × n real matrix such that A^{2} = I and y = be an n – dimensional vector. Then the linear system of equations Ax = y has

Solution:

By Cramer’s rule AX =y has unique solution.

QUESTION: 18

A real n × n matrix A = {aij} is defined as follows:

a_{ij} = i = 0, if

i = j, otherwise

The summation of all n eigen values of A is

Solution:

It’s a diagonal marix diagonal contain’s n elements 1,2,----,n.

As diagonal elements are eigen valves.

QUESTION: 19

The following system of equations

has a unique solution. The only possible value(s) for a is/are

Solution:

System has unique Soln if rank (A) = rank ( A ) = 3 . It is possible if a ≠ 5.

QUESTION: 20

The eigenvalues of

are

Solution:

The eigenvalues of an upper triangular matrix are simply the diagonal entries of the matrix. Hence 5, -19, and 37 are the eigenvalues of the matrix. Alternately, look at

Then = 5,-19,37 are the roots of the equation; and hence, the eigenvalues of [A].

QUESTION: 21

The number of different n × n symmetric matrices with each element being either 0 or 1 is: (Note : power (2, x) is same as 2x)

Solution:

In a symmetric matrix, the lower triangle must be the minor image of upper triangle using the diagonal as mirror. Diagonal elements may be anything. Therefore, when we are counting symmetric matrices we count how many ways are there to fill the upper triangle and diagonal elements. Since the first row has n elements, second (n – 1) elements, third row (n – 2) elements and so on upto last row, one element. Total number of elements in diagonal + upper triangle

Now, each one of these elements can be either 0 or 1. So that number of ways we can fill these elements is

Since there is no choice for lower triangle elements the answer is power which

is choice (c).

QUESTION: 22

In an M × N matrix such that all non-zero entries are covered in a rows and b column. Then the maximum number of non-zero entries, such that no two are on the same row or column, is

Solution:

Suppose a < b, for example let a = 3, b= 5, then we can put non-zero entries only in 3 rows and 5 columns. So suppose we put non-zero entries in any 3 rows in 3 different columns. Now we can’t put any other non-zero entry anywhere in matrix, because if we put it in some other row, then we will have 4 rows containing non-zeros, if we put it in one of those 3 rows, then we will have more than one non-zero entry in one row, which is not allowed.

So we can fill only “a” non-zero entries if a < b, similarly if b < a, we can put only “b” non-zero entries. So answer is ≤min(a,b), because whatever is less between a and b, we can put atmost that many non-zero entries.

QUESTION: 23

Consider the following system of equation in three real variables x_{1}, x_{2} and x_{3}

This system of equations has

Solution:

∴ Rank (A)= Rank ( A ) = 3

QUESTION: 24

How many of the following matrics have an eigenvalue 1?

Solution:

Rest given matrix are triangular matrix. so diagonal elements are the eigen values.
