## Gujarat Board Textbook Solutions Class 12 Maths Chapter 3 Matrices Ex 3.1

Question 1.

In the matrix A = \(\left[\begin{array}{cccc} 2 & 5 & 19 & -7 \\ 35 & -2 & \frac{5}{2} & 12 \\ \sqrt{3} & 1 & -5 & 17 \end{array}\right]\), write :

(i) The order of the matrix.

(ii) The number of elements. .

(iii) Write the elements a_{13}, a_{21}, a_{33}, a_{24}, a_{23}.

Solution:

(i) The order of the matrix = 3 x 4.

(ii) Hie number of elements = 3 x 4 = 12.

(iii) a_{13} = 19. a_{21} = 35, a_{33} = – 5, a_{24} = 12, a_{23} = \(\frac { 5 }{ 2 }\).

Question 2.

If a matrix has 24 elements, what are possible orders it can have? What, if it has 13 elements?

Solution:

(i) 24 = 1 x 24 = 2 x 12 = 3 x 8 = 4 x 6

Thus, there are 8 matrices having 24 elements.

Their orders are 1 x 24, 24 x 1, 2 x 12, 12 x 2, 3 x 8, 8 x 3, 4 x 6, 6 x 4.

(ii) 13 = 1 x 13

There are 2 matrices of 13 elements of orders 1 x 13 and 13 x 1.

Question 3.

If a matrix has 18 elements, what are the possible orders it can have? What, if it has 5 elements?

Solution:

(i) 18 = 1 x 18 = 2 x 9 = 3 x 6

There are 6 matrices of orders 1 x 18, 18 x 1, 2 x 9, 9 x 2, 3 x 6, 6 x 3.

(ii) 5 = 1 x 5

There are two matrices with 5 elements of orders 1 x 5 and 5 x 1.

Question 4.

Construct 2 x 2 matrix A = [a] whose elements are given by

(i) a_{ij} = \(\frac{(i+j)^{2}}{2}\)

(ii) a_{ij} = \(\frac { i }{ j }\)

(iii) a_{ij} = \(\frac{(i+2j)^{2}}{2}\)

Solution:

(i) a_{ij} = \(\frac{(i+j)^{2}}{2}\)

(ii) a_{ij} = \(\frac { i }{ j }\)

(iii) a_{ij} = \(\frac{(i+2j)^{2}}{2}\)

Question 5.

Construct a 3 x 4 matrix whose elements are given by:

(i) a_{ij} = \(\frac { 1 }{ 2 }\)|-3i+j|

(ii) a_{ij} = 2i – j

Solution:

(i) a_{ij} = \(\frac { 1 }{ 2 }\)|-3i+j|

(ii) a_{ij} = 2i – j

Question 6.

Find the values of x, y and z from the following equations:

(i) \(\left[\begin{array}{ll} 4 & 3 \\ x & 5 \end{array}\right]\) = \(\left[\begin{array}{ll} y & 3 \\ 1 & 5 \end{array}\right]\)

(ii) \(\left[\begin{array}{ll} x+y & 2 \\ 5+z & xy \end{array}\right]\) = \(\left[\begin{array}{ll} 6 & 5 \\ 2 & 8 \end{array}\right]\)

(iii) \(\left[\begin{array}{c} x+y+z \\ x+z \\ y+z \end{array}\right]\) = \(\left[\begin{array}{c} 9 \\ 5 \\ 7 \end{array}\right]\)

Solution:

(i) \(\left[\begin{array}{ll} 4 & 3 \\ x & 5 \end{array}\right]\) = \(\left[\begin{array}{ll} y & 3 \\ 1 & 5 \end{array}\right]\)

Equating corresponding elements of the two matrices, we get

4 = y, 3 = z, x = 1

i.e.,

x = 1, y = 4, z = 3.

(ii) \(\left[\begin{array}{ll} x+y & 2 \\ 5+z & xy \end{array}\right]\) = \(\left[\begin{array}{ll} 6 & 5 \\ 2 & 8 \end{array}\right]\)

Comparing the corresponding elements, we get

x + y = 6, 5 + z = 5, xy = 8

âˆ´ y = 6 – x. Putting value of y in xy = 8, we get

x(6 – x) = 8 or xÂ² – 6x + 8 = 0

âˆ´ (x-4)(x-2) = 0 âˆ´ x = 4, 2

y = 2, 4

Also, 5 + z = 5 âˆ´ z = 0

âˆ´ x = 4, y = 2, z = 0

or x = 2, y = 4, z = 0

(iii) \(\left[\begin{array}{c} x+y+z \\ x+z \\ y+z \end{array}\right]\) = \(\left[\begin{array}{c} 9 \\ 5 \\ 7 \end{array}\right]\)

Equating the corresponding elements, we get

x + y + z = 9 … (1)

x + z = 5 … (2)

y + z = 7 … (3)

Adding (2) and (3),

or (x + y + z) + z = 12

or 9 + z = 12

âˆ´ z = 12 – 9

= 3.

From (2),

x + z = 5

or x + 3 = 5

âˆ´ x = 2.

From (3),

y + z = 7

y + 3 = 7

âˆ´ y = 4.

Thus, x = 2, y = 4, z = 3.

Alternatively : Equation (1) – (2)

y = 4

(1)-(3)

x = 2 [âˆ´ z = 3 [from(1)]]

â‡’ x = 2, y = 4, z = 3.

Question 7.

Find the values of a, b, c and d from the equation

\(\left[\begin{array}{cc} a-b & 3 a+c \\ 2 a-b & 3 c+d \end{array}\right]\) = \(\left[\begin{array}{cc} -1 & 5 \\ 0 & 13 \end{array}\right]\)

Solution:

Comparing the corresponding elements of

\(\left[\begin{array}{cc} a-b & 3 a+c \\ 2 a-b & 3 c+d \end{array}\right]\) = \(\left[\begin{array}{cc} -1 & 5 \\ 0 & 13 \end{array}\right]\), we get

a – b = – 1, 2a – b = 0,

2a + c – 5, 3c + d = 13

Subtracting a – b = – 1 from 2a – b = 0, we get

a = 1. Therefore, b = 2.

Putting a = 1 in

2a + c = 5, we get

2 + c = 5

âˆ´ c = 3

From

3c + d = 13

9 + d = 13

âˆ´ = 4.

âˆ´ a = 1, b = 2, c = 3, d = 4.

Question 8.

A = [a_{ij}]_{mxn} is a square matrix, if

(A) m < n (B) m > n

(C) m-n

(D) None of these.

Solution:

For a square matrix m = n.

âˆ´ Part (C) is the correct answer.

Question 9.

Which of the given values of x and y make the following pair of matrices equal.

\(\left[\begin{array}{cc} 3 x+7 & 5 \\ y+1 & 2-3 x \end{array}\right]\) = \(\left[\begin{array}{cc} 0 & y-2 \\ 8 & 4 \end{array}\right]\)

(A) x = – \(\frac { 1 }{ 3 }\), y = 7

(B) Not Possible to find

(C) y = 7, x = – \(\frac { 2 }{ 3 }\)

(D) x = – \(\frac { 1 }{ 3 }\), y = – \(\frac { 2 }{ 3 }\)

Solution:

Here, x has two values viz. – \(\frac { 7 }{ 3 }\) and – \(\frac { 2 }{ 3 }\).

âˆ´ Not possible to find values of x and y.

â‡’ Part (B) is correct.

Question 10.

The number of all possible matrices of order 3 x 3 with each entry 0 or 1 is

(A) 27

(B) 18

(C) 81

(D) 512

Solution:

There are 9 entries in a 3 x 3 matrix. Each place can be filled with 0 or 1.

âˆ´ 9 places can be filled in 2^{9} = 512 ways.

Number of such matrices = 512.

â‡’ Part (D) is correct answer.
