###### Exercise 4.2

**Question 1.**Find the values of x, y and z from the matrix equation

**Answer:**Since given is the matrix equation we would equate the right hand side elements with left hand side elements

⇒ 5x + 2 = 12 , y – 4 = – 8 and 4z + 6 = 2

⇒ 5x = 10 , y = – 4 and 4z = – 4

⇒ x = 2 , y = – 4 and z = – 1

**Question 2.**Solve for x and y if

**Answer:**Since given is the matrix equation we would equate the right hand side elements with left hand side elements

2x + y = 5 …1

and x – 3y = 13 ….2

Multiplying equation 2 by 2

we get (x – 3y = 13 ) 2

2x – 6y = 26 ….3

Subtracting equation 1 and 3

Or

Y = – 3

Substituting value of y in 1

2x – 3 = 5 ⇒ 2x = 8 ⇒ x = 4

Hence the solution is x = 4 and y = – 3

**Question 3.**If , then find the additive inverse of A.

X – y = ……4

Adding 3 and 4

2x =

X =

Subtracting 4 from 3

2y =

Y =

Hence x = = and y =

**Question 8.**Solve for x and y if

**Answer:**given

⇒ (x + 3) (x + 3) = 0

x = – 3 , – 3

y^{2} – 3y = 4

⇒ y^{2} – 3y – 4 = 0

⇒ y( y – 4) + 1( y – 4) = 0

__Square Matrix:__

If the rows and columns of the matrices are equal then it will constitute square like structure. So, it is called as square matrix.

E.g.

__Diagonal Matrix:__

In a square matrix all the elements are zero except the diagonal elements of the matrix. Then that matrix is said to be diagonal matrix.

E.g.

__Scalar Matrix:__

In a diagonal matrix, if all the diagonal elements are same then that matrix is said to be a scalar matrix.

E.g.

Option(A):

A scalar matrix should be a square matrix so, it is true

Option(B):

Diagonal matrix forms only with the square matrix so, it is true

Option(C):

A scalar matrix consists of zero except the diagonal elements so it is true.

Option(D):

A scalar matrix should comprise of same diagonal elements but in diagonal matrix it may (or) may not contains same diagonal elements. So it is False.

__Option(D) is not True in the given.__

**Question 1.**

Which one of the following statements is not true?

A. A scalar matrix is a square matrix

B. A diagonal matrix is a square matrix

C. A scalar matrix is a diagonal matrix

D. A diagonal matrix is a scalar matrix.

**Answer:**

In the above question we see the following terms,

Scalar Matrix, Square Matrix, Diagonal Matrix

To answer this question, we have to know the definition of the above terms.

__Square Matrix:__

If the rows and columns of the matrices are equal then it will constitute square like structure. So, it is called as square matrix.

E.g.

__Diagonal Matrix:__

In a square matrix all the elements are zero except the diagonal elements of the matrix. Then that matrix is said to be diagonal matrix.

E.g.

__Scalar Matrix:__

In a diagonal matrix, if all the diagonal elements are same then that matrix is said to be a scalar matrix.

E.g.

Option(A):

A scalar matrix should be a square matrix so, it is true

Option(B):

Diagonal matrix forms only with the square matrix so, it is true

Option(C):

A scalar matrix consists of zero except the diagonal elements so it is true.

Option(D):

A scalar matrix should comprise of same diagonal elements but in diagonal matrix it may (or) may not contains same diagonal elements. So it is False.

__Option(D) is not True in the given.__

**Question 2.**

A. –2, 7

B.

C.

D. 2, –7

**Answer:**

Given,

=

If the one matrix is equivalent to other matrix, then their elements should be equal.

⇒ 3x + 7 = 1 & 5 = y-2

3x = -6 ; y = 7

x = -2 ; y = 7

∴ Option (A) is the answer.

**Question 4.**

If A = (1 -2 3) and then A + B

A. (0 0 0)

B.

C. (-14)

D. not defined

**Answer:**

For matrix addition operation their no. of rows and no. of columns should be equal. Otherwise addition is not possible.

In the given matrix A has 1 row and 3 columns

But matrix B has 3 rows and 1 column.

Since rows and columns are not equal it is not possible to add.

So the answer is (d)

**Question 5.**

If a matrix is of order 2 × 3, then the number of elements in the matrix is

A. 5

B. 6

C. 2

D. 3

**Answer:**

Given that a matrix with order 2x3

We know that the no. of elements in the matrix is equal to the product of no. of rows and no. of columns

i.e., No. of elements = No. of rows × No. of columns

∴ No. of elements = 2 x 3

= 6

∴ There will be 6 elements in the given matrix

So, option (B) is the correct answer.

B. 4 × 4

C. 4 × 3

D. not defined

**Answer:**

Given matrix orders

[A] with 3 x 4 and [B] with 4 x 3

We have to find the order of [B].[A]

For matrix multiplication the columns of 1^{st} matrix and the rows of 2^{nd} matrix should be equal.

E.g. [A]_{3x2}.[B]_{2x2}

The order of new matrix formed after multiplication of matrices will be 1^{st} matrix row will be taken as new matrix rows. The no. of columns in 2^{nd} matrix will be taken as new matrix columns.

E.g. [A]_{3x2}.[B]_{2x2} = [AB]_{3x2}

In the same way [B]_{4x3}.[A]_{3x4} = [AB]_{4x4}

∴ option (B) is correct answer

**Question 8.**

If , then the order of A is

A. 2 × 1

B. 2 × 2

C. 1 × 2

D. 3 × 2

**Answer:**

Given,

A x

Let us consider as matrix B, it has an order of 2x2

Let us consider the resultant matrix as C, it has an order of 1x2

For matrix multiplication the columns of 1^{st} matrix and the rows of 2^{nd} matrix should be equal.

So, matrix A has got same Columns as Rows of matrix B

The order of new matrix formed after multiplication of matrices will be 1^{st} matrix row will be taken as new matrix rows. The no. of columns in 2^{nd} matrix will be taken as new matrix columns

So, matrix A has got same Rows as Rows of matrix C

So, Matrix A will consists of 1x2 order

∴ option (C) is correct answer

**Question 9.**
