## ADDING AND SUBTRACTING MATRICES WORKSHEET

Two and more matrices can be added or subtracted if and only if they are having same order.

Note :

If the order those matrices are not same then, we cannot add those matrices.

Question 1 : Question 2 : Question 3 :

Subtract the following matrices. Question 4 :

Suppose the sum A+B+C exists. We also know that  has 2 rows and C has 3 columns. What can we say about matrix B ?

Question 5 :

Given that Where O is the 2x2 zero matrix, find the value of x.

Question 6 :

Given that find the values of x, y, z, a and b. Question 1: Solution : Question 2 :

Find the sum of the following matrices Solution : Question 3 :

Subtract the following matrices. Solution : Question 4 :

Suppose the sum A+B+C exists. We also know that  has 2 rows and C has 3 columns. What can we say about matrix B ?

Solution :

If A+B+C exists, then the matrices A, B and C should be in same order.

In general,

Order of matrix  =  m x n

m - Number of rows and n - number of columns

From the given information,

Number of rows of matrix A  =  2

Number of columns of matrix C  =  3

Both A and C should be in the order 2 x 3, then matrix B  will also have the same order.

So, order of the matrix B is 2 x 3.

Question 5 :

Given that Where O is the 2x2 zero matrix, find the value of x.

Solution :  a-6  =  0a  =  6 b+8  =  0b  =  -8 c+6  =  0c  =  -6 d+5  =  0d  =  -5 Question 6 :

Given that find the values of x, y, z, a and b.

Solution :

By adding the corresponding terms, we get x  =  7+11x  =  18 y  =  -5+9y  =  4 z  =  10+11z  =  21 a  =  5+6a  =  11

b  =  5+2

b  =  7

So, the values of x, y, z, a and b are 18, 4, 21, 11 and 7 respectively. Apart from the stuff given above if you need any other stuff in math, please use our google custom search here.
