(iii) 3A – C

(iv) AB

(v) BA

Solution:

(i) (ii) (iii) (iv) (v) ### Solution:

(i) (ii) (iii) (iv) ### Solution:

(i) (ii) (iii) (iv) (v) (vi) ### Question 4. If , then compute (A + B) and (B – C). Also, verify that A + (B – C) = (A + B) – C.

Solution: Now we have to show A + (B – C) = (A + B) – C L.H.S = R.H.S.

Hence, Proved

### Question 5. If , then compute 3A – 5B.

Solution: ### Question 6.  Simplify Solution: = 1 = identity matrix

### (ii) Solution:

(i) Given:  Adding (1) and (2), we get (ii) Given: Now, multiply equation (1) by 2 and equation (2) by 3 we get Subtracting equation (4) from (3), we get,  ### Question 8. Find X, if and Solution: ### Question 9. Find X and Y, if Solution:

Given: Equating corresponding entries, we have

2 + y = 5 and 2x + 2 = 8

y = 5 – 2 and 2(x + 1) = 8

y = 3 and x + 1 = 4

Therefore, y = 3 and x = 3

### Question 10. Solve the equation for x, y, z and t, if Solution:

Given: On comparing both sides, we have

2x + 3 = 9 ⇒ 2x = 9 – 3 ⇒ 2x = 6 ⇒ x = 3

2z – 3 = 15 ⇒ 2z = 15 + 3 ⇒ 2z = 18 ⇒ z = 9

2y = 12 ⇒ y = 6

2t + 6 = 18 ⇒ 2t = 18 – 6 ⇒ 2t = 12 ⇒ t = 6

Therefore, x = 3, y = 6, z = 9, t = 6
