Q1 :  

In the matrix, write:

(i) The order of the matrix (ii) The number of elements,

(iii) Write the elements a13, a21, a33, a24, a23


Answer :

(i) In the given matrix, the number of rows is 3 and the number of columns is 4. Therefore, the order of the matrix is 3 ×4.

(ii) Since the order of the matrix is 3 ×4, there are 3 ×4 = 12 elements in it.

(iii) a13= 19, a21= 35, a33= - 5, a24= 12, a23=

Q2 :  

If a matrix has 24 elements, what are the possible order it can have? What, if it has 13 elements?


Answer :

We know that if a matrix is of the order m x n, it has mn elements. Thus, to find all the possible orders of a matrix having 24 elements, we have to find all the ordered pairs of natural numbers whose product is 24.

The ordered pairs are: (1, 24), (24, 1), (2, 12), (12, 2), (3, 8), (8, 3), (4, 6), and
(6, 4)

Hence, the possible orders of a matrix having 24 elements are:

1 x 24, 24 x 1, 2 x 12, 12 x 2, 3 x 8, 8 x 3, 4 x 6, and 6 x 4

(1, 13) and (13, 1) are the ordered pairs of natural numbers whose product is 13.

Hence, the possible orders of a matrix having 13 elements are 1 x 13 and 13 x 1.
