EXERCISE 4.1


Page No 108:

Question 1:

Evaluate the determinants in Exercises 1 and 2.

Answer:

 = 2(−1) − 4(−5) = − 2 + 20 = 18

Question 2:

Evaluate the determinants in Exercises 1 and 2.

(i)  (ii) 

Answer:

(i)  = (cos θ)(cos θ) − (−sin θ)(sin θ) = cos2 θ+ sin2 θ = 1

(ii) 

= (x2 − x + 1)(x + 1) − (x − 1)(x + 1)

x3 − x2 + x + x2 − x + 1 − (x2 − 1)

x3 + 1 − x2 + 1

x3 − x2 + 2

Question 3:

If, then show that

Answer:

The given matrix is.

Question 4:

If, then show that

Answer:

The given matrix is.

It can be observed that in the first column, two entries are zero. Thus, we expand along the first column (C1) for easier calculation.

From equations (i) and (ii), we have:

Hence, the given result is proved.

Question 5:

Evaluate the determinants

(i)  (iii) 

(ii)  (iv) 

Answer:

(i) Let.

It can be observed that in the second row, two entries are zero. Thus, we expand along the second row for easier calculation.

(ii) Let.

By expanding along the first row, we have:

(iii) Let

By expanding along the first row, we have:

(iv) Let

By expanding along the first column, we have:

If, find.

Answer:

Let

By expanding along the first row, we have:

Question 7:

Find values of x, if

(i)

2451=2x46x(ii)

2345=x32x5

Answer:

(i) 

(ii) 

Question 8:

If, then x is equal to

(A) 6 (B) ±6 (C) −6 (D) 0

Answer:

Answer: B

Hence, the correct answer is B.
