Answer.

Let the parts be x and (30000 – x)

Question 3.

If

(i) If ( A + B)² = A² + B², Prove that BA + AB = 0.

Question 9.

For what values of x:

Answer.

Question 10.

Using elementary row transformations, find the inverse of the matrix if it exists.

Answer.

To use elementary row transformations,write A = IA.

A^{-1} does not exist. Since the elements of second row of the matrix on LHS are zero.

i. A = a_{11} = 1 + 1 = 2,

a_{12} = 1 + 2 + 3, a_{21} = 2 + 1 = 3

Question 6.

Let A and B be two symmetric matrices of same order. Then show that AB-BA is a skew-symmetric matrix

Answer.

i. Given A = A^{T}, B = B^{T}

(AB – BA)^{T} = (AB)^{T}-(BA)^{T}

=B^{T}A^{T}-A^{T}B^{T} = BA-AB = -(AB-BA)

Therefore AB-BA is skew-symmetric matrix

Question 2.

positive integer n.

(i) Show that result is true for n = 1

(ii) Show that lithe result ¡s true for n = m, it is true for n = m + 1 also.

Answer.

(i) When n = 1

This shows that the result is true for n = m + 1 whenever it is true for n = m. Hence the result is true for any positive integer.

Question 3.

Answer.

This shows that the result is true for n = m + 1, whenever it is true for n = m. Hence by principle of mathematical induction, it is true for all n ∈ N.
