Question 16: For what value of p the following set of equations will have no solution? [2015 : 1 Mark, SetI]
2x + 3y = 5
3x + py = 10
Solution: Given system of equations has no solution if the lines are parallel i.e., their slopes are equal
2/3 = 3/p
⇒ p = 4.5
Question 17: The rank of the matrix is _____. [2014 : 2 Marks, SetII]
Solution:
Determinant of matrix is not zero.
∴ Rank is 2
Question 18: The determinant of matrix [2014 : 1 Mark, SetII]
Solution:
Interchanging column 1 and column 2 and taking transpose,
Question 19: With reference to the conventional Cartesian (x, y) coordinate system, the vertices of a triangle have the following coordinates; (x_{1}, y_{1}) = (1, 0); (x_{2}, y_{2}) = (2, 2); (x_{3}, y_{3}) = (4, 3). The area of the triangle is equal to [2014 : 1 Mark, SetI]
(a) 3/2
(b) 3/4
(c) 4/5
(d) 5/2
Answer: (a)
Solution:
Area of triangle is
Question 20: The sum of Eigen values of matrix, [M] is where [2014 : 1 Mark, SetI]
(a) 915
(b) 1355
(c) 1640
(d) 2180
Answer: (a)
Solution: Sum of eigen values = trace of matrix
= 215 + 150 + 550 = 915
Question 21: Given the matrices the product K^{T} JK is ____. [2014 : 1 Mark, SetI]
Solution:
Question 22: There are three matrixes P(4 x 2), Q(2 x 4) and R(4 x 1). The minimum of multiplication required to compute the matrix PQR is [2013 : 1 Mark]
Solution: If we multiply QR first then,
Q_{2x4} x R_{(4x1)} having multiplication number 8.
There fore P_{(4 x 2)} QR_{(2 x 1)} will have minimum number of multiplication = (8 + 8) = 16.
Question 23: The eigen values of matrix [2011 : 2 Marks]
(a) 2.42 and 6.86
(b) 3.48 and 13.53
(c) 4.70 and 6.86
(d) 6.86 and 9.50
Answer: (b)
Solution: We need eigen values of
The characteristic equation is,
So eigen values are,
λ = 3.48, 13.53
Question 24: [A] is square matix which is neither symmetric nor skewsymmetric and [A]^{T} is its transpose. The sum and difference of these matrices are defined as [S] = [A] + [A]^{T} and [D] = [A]  [A]^{T}, respectively. Which of the following statements is TRUE? [2011 : 1 Mark]
(a) Both [S] and [D] are symmetric
(b) Both [S] and [D] are skewsymmetric
(c) [S] is skewsymmetric and [D] is symmetric
(d) [S] is symmetric and [D] is skewsymmetric
Answer: (d)
Solution: Since (A + A^{t}) = A^{t} + (A^{t})^{t}
= A^{t} + A
i.e. S^{t} = S
∴ S is symmetric
Since (A  A^{t})^{t} = A^{t}  (A^{t})^{t}
= A^{t}  A = (A  A^{t})
i.e. D^{t} =  D
So D is SkewSymmetric.
