Let A= (aij) be an n-rowed square matrix and I12 be the matrix obtained by interchanging the first and second rows of the n-rowed Identify matrix. Then AI12 is such that its first
(A) row is the same as its second row
(B) row is the same as the second row of A
(C) column is the same as the second column of A
(D) row is all zero
When the above matrices are multiplied, the result is , which is the matrix A with it’s first and second row interchanged.
This is because the first row of has a 1 in the second column and it’s second row has a 1 in the first column. So when the matrices are multiplied, the first and second rows get exchanged.
