QUESTION: 1

### The number of all possible matrices of order 3×3 with each entry 0 if 1 is

Solution:

23x3 = 29 = 512.

The number of elements in a 3 X 3 matrix is the product 3 X 3=9.

Each element can either be a 0 or a 1.

Given this, the total possible matrices that can be selected is 29=512

QUESTION: 2

### Solution:

If any row or column of a square matrix is 0 , then its product with itself is always a zero matrix.

QUESTION: 3

### This matrix is a _______ . Solution:
QUESTION: 4

Two matrices A and B are multiplicative inverse of each other only if

Solution:

If AB = BA = I , then A and B are inverse of each other. i.e. A is invers of B and B is inverse of A.

QUESTION: 5

For what value of λ the following system of equations does not have a solution ? x + y + z = 6, 4x + λy - λz = 0, 3 x + 2y – 4 z = - 5

Solution:

The given system of equations does not have solution if :  ⇒ (24 + 6λ - 14λ) = 0 ⇒ λ = 3

QUESTION: 6

I2 is the matrix

Solution: In linear algebra, the identity matrix, or sometimes ambiguously called a unit matrix, of size n is the n × n square matrix with ones on the main diagonal and zeros elsewhere. It is denoted by In, or simply by I if the size is immaterial or can be trivially determined by the context

QUESTION: 7

Let A be any m×n matrix, then A2 can be found only when

Solution:

The product of any matrix with itself can be found only when it is a square matrix.i.e. m = n.

QUESTION: 8

The order of the single matrix obtained from is Solution:   QUESTION: 9

If A and B are square matrices of the same order, then(A+B)2 = A2+2AB+B2 implies

Solution:

If A and B are square matrices of same order , then , product of the matrices is not commutative.Therefore , the given result is true only when AB = BA.

QUESTION: 10

The value of λ, for which system of equations. x + y + z = 1, x + 2y + 2z = 3, x + 2y + λz = 4, have no solution is

Solution:

The given system of equations does not have solution if :  ⇒ (-2 + λ) = 0 ⇒ λ = 2

QUESTION: 11

If A is a matrix of order 3 × 4 , then each row of A has

Solution: , therefore matrix A has 4 elements in each row

QUESTION: 12

If A and B are any two matrices, then

Solution:

Let matrix A is of order m x n , and matrix B is of order p x q . then , the product AB is defined only when n = p. that’s why, If A and B are any two matrices, then AB may or may not be defined.

QUESTION: 13

If, we are given a square matrix A then, Adj.(KA) = ….

Solution:

Adj.(KA) = Kn−1 Adj.A , where K is a scalar and A is a n x n matrix.

QUESTION: 14

Let A = , then adj A is

Solution: Explanation :  A = {(1,0,0) (5,2,0) (-1,6,1)}

a11 = 2, a12 = -5, a13 = 32

a21 = 0, a22 = 1, a23 = -6

a31 = 0, a32 = 0, a33 = 2

then A becomes = {(2,-5,32) (0,1,-6) (0,0,2)}

QUESTION: 15

The system of equations,x + y = 2 and 2x + 2y = 3 has

Solution:

For No solutions, for given system of equations we have QUESTION: 16

If P is of order 2 × 3 and Q is of order 3 × 2, then PQ is of order

Solution:

Here, matrix P is of order 2 × 3 and matrix Q is of order 2 × 2 , then , the product PQ is defined only when : no. of columns in P = no. of rows in Q. And the order of resulting matrix is given by : rows in P x columns in Q.

QUESTION: 17

A square matrix A = [aij]n×n is called a lower triangular matrix if aij = 0 for

Solution:
