## Tamilnadu Samacheer Kalvi 10th Maths Solutions Chapter 3 Algebra Ex 3.18

Question 1.
Find the order of the product matrix AB if Given A = [aij]p×q and B = [aij]q×r
Order of product of AB = p × r
Order of product of BA is not defined. Number columns in r is not equal to the number of rows in P.
∴ Product BA is not defined. Question 2.
A has ‘a’ rows and ‘a + 3 ’ columns. B has ‘6’ rows and ‘17 – b’ columns, and if both products AB and BA exist, find a, b?
Solution:
A has a rows, a + 3 columns.
B has b rows, 17 – b columns
If AB exists a × a + 3
b × 17 – b
a + 3 = 6 ⇒ a – 6 = -3 ………… (1)
If BA exists 6 × 17-6
a × a + 3
17 – 6 = a ⇒ a + 6 = 17 …………. (2)
(1) + (2) ⇒ 2a = 14 ⇒ a = 7
Substitute a = 7 in (1) ⇒ 7 – b = -3 ⇒ b = 10
a = 7, b = 10 Question 3.
A has ‘a’ rows and ‘a + 3 ’ columns. B has rows and ‘b’ columns, and if both products AB and BA exist, find a,b?

1. Order of matrix AB = 3 × 3
2. Order of matrix AB = 4 × 2
3. Order of matrix AB = 4 × 2
4. Order of matrix AB = 4 × 1
5. Order of matrix AB = 1 × 3

Question 4. find AB, BA and check if AB = BA? Question 5.
Given that  verify that A(B + C) = AB + AC    From (1) and (2) we get
A (B + C) = AB + AC Question 6.
Show that the matrices  satisfy commutative property AB = BA From (1) and (2) we get
AB = BA. It satisfy the commutative property.

Question 7. Show that (i) A(BC) = (AB)C
(ii) (A-B)C = AC – BC
(iii) (A-B)T = AT – BT   From (1) and (2) we get
A(BC) = (AB)C   From (1) and (2) we get
(A – B) C = AC – BC  From (1) and (2) we get
(A-B)T = AT – BT Question 8. then snow that A2 + B2 = I. Question 9. prove that AAT = I. AAT = I
∴ L.H.S. = R.H.S. Question 10.
Verify that A2 = I when  ∴ L.H.S. = R.H.S.

Question 11. show that A2 – (a + d)A = (bc – ad)I2. L.H.S. = R.H.S.
A2 – (a + d) A = (bc – ad)I2 Question 12. verify that (AB)T = BT AT  From (1) and (2) we get, (AB)T = BT AT Question 13. show that A2 – 5A + 7I2 = 0
