#### Important Questions with Answers for Practice

1. A matrix X has a + b rows and a + 2 columns while the matrix Y has b + 1 rows and a + 3 columns. Both matrices XY and YX exist. Find a and b. Can you say XY and YX are of the same type? Are they equal. [Answer: a = 2, b = 3, No]

2. Prove that the diagonal elements of a skew-symmetric matrix are all zero.

3. Give examples of matrices (i) A and B such that AB ≠ BA. (ii) A and B such that AB = O but A ≠ O, B ≠ O. (iii) A and B such that AB = O but BA ≠ O. (iv) A, B and C such that AB = AC but B ≠ C, A ≠ O.

4. If A and B are skew symmetric matrices of the same order, prove that AB + BA is symmetric matrix.

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

- Let A and B be square matrices of the same order. Does (A + B)² = A² + 2AB + B² hold? If not, why?
- The monthly incomes of Mohan and Sohan are in the ratio 3:4 and their monthly expenditures are in the ratio 5:7. If each saves ₹15000 per month, find their monthly incomes and expenditures using matrices. [Answer: ₹90000 and ₹120000]
- For any square matrix write whether AA’ is symmetric of skew-symmetric.
- Three shopkeepers A, B and C go to a store to buy stationary. A purchase 12 dozen notebooks, 5 dozen pens and 6 dozen pencils. B purchases 10 dozen notebooks, 6 dozen pens and 7 dozen pencils.

##### Does the inverse of all Matrices exist?

In case, after applying one or more elementary row (column) operations on A = IA (A = AI), if we obtain all zeros in one or more rows of the matrix A on L.H.S., then A inverse does not exist.

##### How do we operate Elementary Row Operations?

Let X, A and B be matrices of, the same order such that X = AB. In order to apply a sequence of elementary row operations on the matrix equation X = AB, we will apply these row operations simultaneously on X and on the first matrix A of the product AB on RHS.

##### How do we operate Elementary Column Operations?

Let X, A and B be matrices of, the same order such that X = AB. In order to apply a sequence of elementary column operations on the matrix equation X = AB, we will apply, these operations simultaneously on X and on the second matrix B of the product AB on RHS.

##### Prove that the inverse of a square matrix, if it exists, is unique.

Let A = [aij] be a square matrix of order m. If possible, let B and C be two inverses of A. We shall show that B = C.

Since B is the inverse of A

AB = BA = I … (1)

Since C is also the inverse of A

AC = CA = I … (2)

Thus,

B = BI = B (AC) = (BA) C = IC = C
