**EXERCISE 5.1**

Question 1

**If a matrix has 8 elements, what are the possible orders it can have? What if it has 5 elements?**

**Sol:**

Order of matrix = number of rows number of column

**OR**

Total number of elements = number of rows number of column

Thus, to find all possible order of a matrix having 8 elements we have to find all possible ordered pairs whose product is 8.

Possible order pairs are

(1 8) ; (8 1) ; (2 4) ; (4 2) ;

**AND**

The possible orders of a matrix with 5 total elements are

(1 5) ; (5 1)

Question 2

**If ** and then find

**(i) ****(ii) **

**Sol :**

(i)

where,

and

= 4 + (-3)

= 1

(ii)

where,

= (2)(2) + (4)(4)

= 4 + 16

= 20
