    Here we are providing NCERT Exemplar Solutions for all the questions of Class 12 Mathematics Chapter 3 – Matrices. These questions are solved by experienced subject experts of Mathematics in the most appropriate and simple way so as to help students access the right source for the exam preparation. The questions given in the chapter Matrices of NCERT Exemplar Solutions are very important for board exams as well as engineering entrance exams like JEE Main, WBJEE and UPSEE etc.

    Important Topics of Chapter – Matrices

    • Notation and order of matrix,
    • Addition, subtraction and multiplication of matrices,
    • Equality of matrix,
    • Types of matrix like diagonal, zero and identity matrix etc.,
    • Transpose of a matrix,
    • Symmetric and skew symmetric matrices and
    • Invertible matrices
    • Proof of the uniqueness of inverse, if it exists

    Few problems along with their solutions from this chapter are given follows:

    Question:

    Total number of possible matrices of order 3 x 3 with each entry 2 or 0 is

    (a) 9    

    (b) 27  

    (c) 81  

    (d) 512

    Solution: (d)

    Total number of possible matrices of order 3 × 3 with each entry 2 or 0 is 29 i.e., 512.

    Question:

    If A and B are two matrices of the order 3 × m and 3 × n, respectively and m = n, then order of matrix (5A - 2B) is

    (a) m × 3                     

    (b) 3 × 3                     

    (c) m × n                     

    (d) 3 × n

    Solution: (d)     

    We are given that, the order of the matrices A and B are 3 × m and 3 × n respectively. Now, If m = n, then A and B have same orders as 3 × n each, so the order of (5A – 2B) should be same as 3 × n.

    Question:

    The negative of a matrix is obtained by multiplying it by

    Solution:           

    Let A be a matrix of any order.

    We can find the negative of A by multiplying all the elements of A by -1 i.e., -A = -1[A]

    Thus, the negative of a matrix is obtained by multiplying it by  -1.

    Question:

    A matrix which is not a square matrix is called a………..matrix.

    Solution:           

    If the number of rows and columns of a matrix are not same, then the matrix is known as a rectangular matrix. Thus, a matrix which is not a square matrix is called a rectangular matrix.

    Question:

    In applying one or more row operations while finding A-1 by elementary
    row operations, we obtain all zeroes in one or more, then A-1 .......  .

    Solution:           

    In applying one or more row operations while finding A-1 by elementary row operations, we obtain all zeroes in one or more, then A-1 does not exist.

    Question:

    Matrices of any order can be added.

    Solution: False

    The necessary condition for addition of two matrices is that both the matrices are of the same order.

    Question:

    Matrix addition is associative as well as commutative.

    Solution: True

    Consider, A, B and C are matrices of same order.

    Associative property of Matrix addition:

    (A + B) + C = A + (B + C)

    Commutative property of Matrix addition:

    A + B = B + A

    Question:

    If matrix AB = 0, then A = 0 or B = 0 or both A and B are null matrices.

    Solution: False

    Since, for two non-zero matrices A and B of same order, it can be possible that A × B = 0 = null matrix
