## PRACTICE QUESTIONS ON PROPERTIES OF MATRICES

Question 1 :

If

then find AB and BA. Are they equal ?

Question 2 :

If

verify (AB)C  =  A(BC).

Question 3 :

If

verify that (AB)T  =  BTAT

Question 4 :

Prove that

are inverse to each other under matrix multiplication.

Question 5 :

If

find (A + B)C and AC + BC. Is (A + B)C  =  AC + BC ?

Question 6 :

If A and B are square matrices such that

AB = I and BA = I

then B is

(A) Unit matrix

(B) Null matrix

(C) Multiplicative inverse matrix of A

(D) -A

Question 1 :

If

then find AB and BA. Are they equal ?

Solution :

AB and BA are not equal.

Question 2 :

If

verify (AB)C  =  A(BC).

Solution :

Associative property is true in matrix multiplication.

Question 3 :

If

verify that (AB)T  =  BTAT

Question 4 :

Prove that

are inverse to each other under matrix multiplication.

Solution :

If A is a square matrix of order n, and if there exists a square matrix B of the same order n, such that

AB  =  BA  =  I

where I is the unit matrix of order n, then B is called the multiplicative inverse matrix of A.

Question 5 :

If

find (A + B)C and AC + BC. Is (A + B)C  =  AC + BC ?

Solution :

L.H.S :

Add matrices A and B, then multiply (A + B) by C.

R.H.S :

Multiply the matrices A and C. Multiply the matrices B and C.

Add the matrices AC and BC.

So,  (A + B)C and AC + BC are equal.

Question 6 :

If A and B are square matrices such that

AB = I and BA = I

then B is

(A) Unit matrix

(B) Null matrix

(C) Multiplicative inverse matrix of A

(D) -A

Solution :

If A is a square matrix of order n, and if there exists a square matrix B of the same order n, such that

AB  =  BA  =  I

Then,

Matrices A and B are inverse to each other.
