Read the mathematical concept carefully and answer the following question. (6 × 1 = 6)

Question 29.
An arrangement of data in rows and columns. Using numbers is known as a matrix. Usually, the matrix is represented by English capital letters.
If a matrix contains 2 raw and 3 columns has an order of 2 × 3. It can be read as ‘2 by 3’ and is represented by 2 × 3. If you say an order say the number of rows, then namber of columns. For example
$$A=\left[\begin{array}{ll} 1 & 2 \\ 4 & 5 \\ 7 & 8 \end{array}\right]$$ order of this matrix is 2 × 3
If the number of rows, and number of columns are different. It is known as rectangular matrix. It both are same then it is square matrix. If the order of matrices are same men it can be add, subtract, ….
for example $$A=\left[\begin{array}{ll} 2 & 4 \\ 6 & 8 \end{array}\right] B=\left[\begin{array}{ll} 3 & 5 \\ 7 & 9 \end{array}\right]$$
$$A+B=\left[\begin{array}{ll} 2+3 & 4+5 \\ 6+7 & 8+9 \end{array}\right]=\left[\begin{array}{cc} 5 & 9 \\ 13 & 17 \end{array}\right]$$
we can do the subtraction also like this.
a)
$$A=\left[\begin{array}{lll} 1 & 2 & 3 \\ 4 & 5 & 6 \end{array}\right]$$
i) Write the order of A
ii) Which type of matrix is A?
b) If B has ‘m’ rows as ‘n’ columns write the order of B
c) If $$C=\left[\begin{array}{lll} 1 & 2 & 3 \\ 4 & 5 & 6 \end{array}\right], D=\left[\begin{array}{ccc} 7 & 8 & 9 \\ 10 & 11 & -12 \end{array}\right]$$
i) Find C + D
ii) Find D – C
d) If the matrix X has an order 4 × 5, y has an order 4 × 5 what will be the order of x + y
c) $$\mathrm{C}+\mathrm{D}\left[\begin{array}{l} 8,10,12 \\ 14,16,18 \end{array}\right] ; \mathrm{C}+\mathrm{D}=\left[\begin{array}{l} 6,6,6 \\ 6,6,6 \end{array}\right]$$
