Q.49. If AB = BA for any two sqaure matrices, prove by mathematical induction that (AB)n = An Bn.
Ans.

Let P(n) : (AB)n = AnBn
Step 1:
Put n = 1, P(1) : AB = AB (True)
Step 2:
Put n = k, P(k) : (AB)k = AkBk
(Let it be true for any k ∈ N)
Step 3:
Put n = k + 1, P(k + 1) : (AB)k + 1 = Ak + 1 Bk + 1
L.H.S. (AB)k + 1 = (AB)k.AB
= AkBk.AB [from Step 2]
= Ak + 1Bk + 1 R.H.S.

L.H.S. = R.H.S.

Hence, if P(n) is true for P(k) then it is true for P(k + 1).

Q.50. Find x, y, z if satisfies A′ = A–1.
Ans.
Given that: Pre-multiplying both sides by A we get,
AA′ = AA– 1

⇒ AA′ = I Equating the corresponding elements, we get,
4y2 + z2 = 1 ...(i)
2y2 – z2 = 0 ...(ii)
Adding (i) and (ii) we get, From eqn. (i), we get,
4y2 + z= 1  x2 + y2 + z2 = 1 ...(iii)
x2 – y2 – z2 = 0 ...(iv)
Adding (iii) and (iv) we get, Hence, Q.51. If possible, using elementary row transformations, find the inverse of the following matrices
(i) (ii) (iii) Ans.
(i) Here, A = for elementary row transformation we put
A = IA R2 → R2 + R1 R3 → R3 - R2 R1 → R1 + R2 R2 → R2 - 3R1 R1 → R1 + R2 and R3 → - 1 . R3 R1 → R1 + 10R3 and R2 → R2 + 17R3 R1 → - 1. R1 and R2 → - 1. R2 Hence, (ii) Here, Put A = IA R1 → R1 - 2R3 and R2 → R2 + R1 R1 → R1 + R2 First row on L.H.S. contains all zeros, so the inverse of the given matrix A does not exist.
Hence, matrix A has no inverse.
(iii) Here, Put A = IA R→ 3R1 - R2 R2 → R2 - 5R1 R→ R- 5R3 R3 → R3 - R2 R1 → R1 + R2   R1 → R1 + 3R3 Hence, Q.52. Express the matrix as the sum of a symmetric and a skew symmetric matrix.
Ans.
We know that any square matrix can be expressed as the sum of symmetric and skew symmetric matrix i.e. So   As P′ = P ∴ P is a symmetric matrix.  As Q = –Q ∴ Q is a skew symmetric matrix.

So A = P + Q Hence, the required relation is Objective Type Questions

Ans. (b)
Solution.

Given that: Equating the corresponding elements, we get,
2x + y = 7 ...(i)
and 4x = x + 6 ...(ii)
from eqn. (ii) 4x – x = 6
3x = 6
∴ x = 2
from eqn. (i) 2 × 2 + y = 7
4 + y = 7 ∴ y = 7 – 4 = 3
Hence, the correct option is (b).

(c) m × n
(d) 3 × n
Ans. (d)

Order of matrix A = m × n
Let order of matrix B be K × P
Order of matrix B′ = P × K
If AB′ is defined then the order of AB′ is m × K if n = P
If B′A is defined then order of B′A is P × n when K = m
Now, order of B′ = P × K
∴ Order of B = K × P
= m × n [∵ K = m, P = n]
Hence, the correct option is (d).

Let P = (AB′ - BA′) P′ = (AB′ - BA′)′
= (AB′)′ -(BA′)′
= (B′)A′ - (A′)′B′ [∵ (AB)′ = B′A′]
= BA′ - AB′
= –(AB′ - BA′) = -P
P′ = –P, so it is a skew symmetric matrix.
Hence, the correct option is (a).

(A – I)3 + (A + I)3 – 7A = A3 – I3 – 3A2I + 3AI2 + A3 + I3 + 3A2I + 3 AI2 – 7A

= 2A3 + 6AI2 – 7A

= 2A.A2 + 6AI – 7A

= 2AI + 6AI – 7A [A2 = I]

Ans. True.
Let A, B and C be three matrices of the same order.
Given that A′ = A, B′ = B and C′ = C
Let P = A + B + C
⇒ P′ = (A + B + C)′
= A′ + B′ + C′
= A + B + C
= P
So, A + B + C is also a symmetric matrix.

Q.95. If A and B are any two matrices of the same order, then (AB)′ = A′B′.
Ans. False.
Since (AB)′ = B′A′.

Q.96. If (AB)′ = B′ A′, where A and B are not square matrices, then number of rows in A is equal to number of columns in B and number of columns in A is equal to number of rows in B.
Ans. True.
Let A = [aij]m × n and B = [bij]p × q
AB is defined when n = P
∴ Order of AB = m × q
⇒ Order of (AB)′ = q × m
Order of B′ is q × p and order of A′ is n × m
∴ B′A′ is defined when P = n
and the order of B′A′ is q × m
Hence, order of (AB)′ = Order of B′A′ i.e., q × m.

Ans. False. Since AB is defined∴  BA is also defined. So AB ≠ BA

Q.100. If A is skew symmetric matrix, then A2 is a symmetric matrix.
Ans. True.

(A2)′ = (A′)2

= [– A]2 [∵ A′ = - A]

= A2
So, A2 is a symmetric matrix.

Q.101. (AB)–1 = A–1. B–1, where A and B are invertible matrices satisfying commutative property with respect to multiplication.
Ans. True.
If A and B are invertible matrices of the same order
∴ (AB)–1 = (BA)–1 [∵ AB = BA]

But (AB)–1 = A–1B–1 [Given]
∴ (BA)–1 = B–1A–1

So A–1B–1 = B–1A–1
∴ A and B satisfy commutative property w.r.t. multiplication.
