3y – 5z = 9

Solution:

Matrix form of the given equation is AX = B

i.e. ∴ |A| = ∴ Solution is unique.

Now, X = A-1B = (adj.A)B Therefore, x=1, y=1/2, z=3/2

Question 12.  x – y + z = 4

2x + y – 3z = 0

x + y + z = 2

Solution:

i.e ∴ |A| = ∴ Solution is unique.

Now, X = A-1B = (adj.A)B Therefore, x = 2, y = -1, z = 1

Question 13. 2x + 3y +3 z = 5

x – 2y + z = – 4

3x – y – 2z = 3

Solution:

Matrix form of given equation is AX = B

i.e. ∴ |A| = ∴ Solution is unique.

Now, X = A-1B = (adj.A)B Therefore, x = 1, y = 2, z = -1

Question 14. x – y + 2z = 7

3x + 4y – 5z = – 5

2x – y + 3z = 12

Solution:

Matrix form of given equation is AX = B

i.e. ∴ |A| = ∴ Solution is unique.

Now, X = A-1B = (adj.A)B Therefore, x = 2, y = 1, z = 3

Question 15. If A= , find A–1. Using A–1 solve the system of equations

2x – 3y + 5z = 11

3x + 2y – 4z = – 5

x + y – 2z = – 3

Solution:

Given: A= Now, |A|= ∴ |A|= Means, A-1 exists.

And A-1 = (adj.A)……(1)

Now, ∴ adj. A = From eq. (1),

A-1= Now, Matrix form of given equation is AX = B

i.e. ∵ Solution is unique.

∴ X=A-1B Therefore, x = 1, y = 2, z = 3

Question 16. The cost of 4 kg onion, 3 kg wheat and 2 kg rice is 60 rupees. The cost of 2 kg onion, 4 kg wheat and 6 kg rice is 90 rupees. The cost of 6 kg onion 2 kg wheat and 3 kg rice is 70 rupees. Find cost of each item per kg by matrix method.

Solution:

Let Rs x, Rs y, Rs z per kg be the prices of onion, wheat and rice respectively.

A.T.Q.

4x+3y+2z=60

2x+4y+6z=90

6x+2y+3z=70

Matrix form of equation is AX = B

where, A= ,B= and X= => Now, |A|= ∴ Solution is unique

Now, X=A-1B= (adj. A)B……(1)

Now, ∴ (adj.A)= From eqn.(1) Therefore, x = 5, y = 8, z = 8

Hence, the cost of onion, wheat and rice are Rs. 5, Rs 8 and Rs 8 per kg.
