## Chapter 9 - Matrices Exercise Ex. 9(C)

The number of columns in the first matrix is not equal to the number of rows in the second matrix. Thus, the product is not possible.

Comparing the corresponding elements, we get,

5x - 2 = 8 x = 2

20 + 3x = y y = 20 + 6 = 26

Comparing the corresponding elements, we get,

x = 2

-3 + y = -2 y = 1

Hence, A(BC) = (AB)C.

(iii) Product AA (=A^{2}) is not
possible as the number of columns of matrix A is not equal to its number of
rows.

Hence, M^{2} = 2M + 3I.

A = B^{2}
- B

A
= 2(B^{2} - B)

It is given that A^{2} = I.

Comparing the corresponding elements, we get,

1 + a = 1

Therefore, a = 0

-1 + b = 0

We know, the product of two matrices is defined only when the number of columns of first matrix is equal to the number of rows of the second matrix.

(i) Let the order of matrix M be a x b.

Clearly, the order of matrix M is 1 x 2.

Comparing the corresponding elements, we get,

a = 1 and a + 2b = 2 2b = 2 - 1 = 1 b =

(ii) Let the order of matrix M be a x b.

Clearly, the order of matrix M is 2 x 1.

Comparing the corresponding elements, we get,

a + 4b = 13 ....(1)

2a + b = 5 ....(2)

Multiplying (2) by 4, we get,

8a + 4b = 20 ....(3)

Subtracting (1) from (3), we get,

7a = 7 a = 1

From (2), we get,

b = 5 - 2a = 5 - 2 = 3

AB = BA = B

We know that I × B = B × I = B, where I is the identity matrix.

Hence, A is an identity matrix.

Comparing the corresponding elements, we get,

3a = 3 + a

2a = 3

4c = 4 + c 3c = 4 c =

Clearly, it can be said that:

(P
+ Q) (P - Q) = P^{2} - Q^{2} not true for matrix algebra.

Hence, ABC ≠ ACB.

Thus, CA + B A + CB

Clearly, the order of matrix X is 2 x 1.

Comparing the two matrices, we get,

2x + y = 3 … (1)

x + 3y = -11 … (2)

Multiplying (1) with 3, we get,

6x + 3y = 9 … (3)

Subtracting (2) from (3), we get,

5x = 20

x = 4

From (1), we have:

y = 3 - 2x = 3 - 8 = -5

Hence, proved.
