##### 12 Maths Chapter 3 Questions on Matrices with Answers

1. In a certain city there are 30 colleges. Each college has 15 peons, 6 clerks, 1 typist and 1 section officer. Express the given information as a column matrix. Using scalar multiplication, find the total number of posts of each kind in all the colleges.

2. Using determinants, find the equation of line passing through (0, 3) and (1, 1). [Answer: 2x + y = 3]

3. If A be any square matrix of order 3 × 3 and |A| = 5, then find the value of |adj(adjA)|. [Answer: 625]

### Important Questions of 12th Maths Exercise 3.3

### What do you know about the Equality of matrices?

Two matrices A = [aij] and B = [bij] are said to be equal if

(i) they are of the same order

(ii) each element of A is equal to the corresponding element of B, that is aij = bij for all i and j.

### What is meant by additive identity?

Let A = [aij] be an m × n matrix and O be an m × n zero matrix, then A + O = O + A = A. In other words, O is the additive identity for matrix addition.

### What is multiplicative identity of a Matrix?

For every square matrix A, there exist an identity matrix of same order such that IA = AI = A. I is multiplicative identity of the Matrix.

### What do you understand by transpose of a Matrix?

If A = [aij] be an m × n matrix, then the matrix obtained by interchanging the rows and columns of A is called the transpose of A.

###### 12th Maths Questions From Board Papers

1. There are two families A and B. There are 4 men, 6 women and 2 children in family A and 2 men, 2 women and 4 children in family B. The recommended daily allowance for calories is Man: 2400, woman: 1900, child: 1800 and for proteins is Man: 55 gm, woman: 45 gm and child: 33 gm. Represent the above information by matrices. Using matrix multiplication, calculate the total requirement of calories and proteins for each of the two families.

2. What is the number of all possible matrices of order 2 × 3 with each entry 0, 1 or 2. [Answer: 729]

3. Given a square matrix A of order 2 × 3 such that |A| = 12, find the value of |A.adjA|. [Answer: 1728]

### What are the main objectives of exercise 3.3 of 12th Maths?

The main objectives of exercise 3.3 of class 12th Maths are to teach students the following topics:

- Transpose of a matrix
- Properties of the transpose of the matrices
- Symmetric matrices
- Skew symmetric matrices

### On which theorems questions of exercise 3.3 of 12th Maths are based?

Some questions of exercise 3.3 of class 12th Maths are based on two theorems (theorem 1 and theorem 2) mentioned under section 3.6 of chapter 3 (class 12th Maths).

Theorem 1: For any square matrix A with real number entries, A + A′ is a symmetric matrix and A – A′ is a skew symmetric matrix.

Theorem 2: Any square matrix can be expressed as the sum of a symmetric and a skew symmetric matrix.

### Is exercise 3.3 of class 12th Maths easy to solve?
