##### Adjoint and Inverse of a Matrix

Adjoint and Inverse of a Matrix is important in finding the solutions of system of linear equation in many variables. During the researches in any field the linear equations of so many variables are formed, then Matrices helps to solve them easily. Adjoint of a matrix of order two can be directly by interchanging a11 & a11 and then changing the sign of a12 & a21.

### Important Questions of 12th Maths Exercise 4.4

### Where does one use determinants in real life?

Determinants can be used in mensuration to find areas and volumes. It is frequently used in research to solve linear equations. Determinants are also used in applied Mathematics.

### Who initiate the using determinants as a tool in Mathematics?

The Chinese method of representing the coefficients of the unknowns of several linear equations by using rods on a calculating board naturally led to the discovery of simple method of elimination. The arrangement of rods was precisely that of the numbers in a determinant. The Chinese, therefore, early developed the idea of subtracting columns and rows as in simplification of a determinant Mikami, China, pp 30, 93.

### What are the main properties of determinants?

The main properties of determinants are as follows:

1. If we interchange any two rows (or columns), then sign of determinant changes.

2. If any two rows or any two columns are identical or proportional, then value of determinant is zero.

3. If we multiply each element of a row or a column of a determinant by constant k, then value of determinant is multiplied by k.

4. Multiplying a determinant by k means multiply elements of only one row (or one column) by k.

5. If elements of a row or a column in a determinant can be expressed as sum of two or more elements, then the given determinant can be expressed as sum of two or more determinants.

6. If to each element of a row or a column of a determinant the equimultiples of corresponding elements of other rows or columns are added, then value of determinant remains same.

### What does a determinant of 1 mean?

When the value of a determinant is 1, the matrix associated to this determinant is said to be unimodular.

### Which theorems should students know before starting exercise 4.4 of grade 12th Maths?

Before starting exercise 4.4 of grade 12th Maths, students should know the following theorems:

- 1. Theorem 1: If A be any given square matrix of order n, then

A(adj A)=(adj A) A=|A| I , where I is the identity matrix of order n. - 2. Theorem 2: If A and B are nonsingular matrices of the same order, then AB and BA are also nonsingular matrices of the same order.
- 3. Theorem 3: The determinant of the product of matrices is equal to product of their respective determinants, i.e., |AB| = |A| |B|, where A and B are square matrices of the same order.
- 4. Theorem 4: A square matrix A is invertible if and only if A is nonsingular matrix.

### Which questions and examples of exercise 4.4 of class 12th Maths are important from an exam point of view?

Exercise 4.4 has four examples (examples 23, 24, 25, 26) and 18 questions. Students should practice all questions and examples of this exercise for the exam.

### When a square matrix is known as non-singular in exercise 4.4 of class 12th Maths?

1. A square matrix A is said to be singular if |A| = 0.

2. A square matrix A is said to be non-singular if |A| ≠ 0.
