2nd PUC Basic Maths Matrices and Determinants Ex 1.6 Two or Three Marks Questions and Answers

Note:
Adjoint of a second order square matrix is obtained by interchanging principal diagonal elements & changing the signs of the secondary diagonal elements.

a

Question 1.
Find the adjoint of the following Matrices

Question 2.
Verify A. adjA = adjA. A = | A| . I for the following Matrices.

Question 3.

Question 4.
If A = $$\left[ \begin{matrix} 1 & -1 & 3 \\ -2 & 4 & 1 \\ 5 & -4 & 0 \end{matrix} \right]$$ and B = $$\left[ \begin{matrix} 2 \\ -1 \\ 4 \end{matrix} \right]$$ then find (adj A).B

Question 5.
If A = $$\left[ \begin{matrix} 1 & -1 & 1 \\ 2 & 3 & 0 \\ 18 & 2 & 10 \end{matrix} \right]$$ . show that A. adjA = 0

Question 6.
Find the inverse of the following matrices.

Question 7.
If A = $$\left[ \begin{matrix} 2 & 3 \\ 1 & -4 \end{matrix} \right]$$ B = $$\left[ \begin{matrix} 1 & -2 \\ -1 & 3 \end{matrix} \right]$$. Verify that (AB)-1 = B-1A-1

From (1) & (2) we have (AB)-1 = B-1 . A-1.

Question 8.
If A = $$\left[ \begin{matrix} 3 & -5 \\ -4 & 2 \end{matrix} \right]$$ . verify that A2 – 5A – 14I = 0 and hence find A-1.

A2 – 5A – 14I = 0 Premuliply by A-1
A-1A A – 5A-1A – 14A-1 I= 0
IA – 5I – 14A-1 = 0
A – 5I – 14A-1 = 0
A – 5I – 14A-1

Question 9.
If A = $$\left[ \begin{matrix} 1 & 1 \\ 2 & 3 \end{matrix} \right]$$ . Show that A2 – 4A + 51 = 0. Hence obtain A-1.
If $$\left[ \begin{matrix} 5x & 2 \\ -10 & 1 \end{matrix} \right]$$ is a singular matrix. Find x.
