About NCERT Exemplar Solutions Class 12 Maths:
Students must go through the basic concepts before checking the solutions given here. All the solutions of the chapter Determinants are solved by subject experts of Mathematics. Students can easily understand all the solutions as all the steps are included while solving questions.
Few problems along with their solutions from this chapter are given follows:
Question:
If the area of a triangle with vertices ( 3, 0), (3, 0) and (0, k) is 9 sq units. Then, the value of k will be
(a) 9
(b) 3
(c) 9
(d) 6
Solution: (b)
Question:
If A is a matrix of order 3 × 3, then (A^{2})^{}^{1} is equal to ........ .
Solution:
We know that, (A^{n})^{}^{1} = (A^{}^{1})^{n}, where n ∈ N.
Substituting n = 2 on both sides, we get
(A^{2})^{}^{1} = (A^{}^{1})^{2}
Question:
If A is a matrix of order 3 × 3, then the number of minors in determinant of A are ........ .
Solution:
Since, the order of the matrix A is 3 × 3. It means there are 9 elements in the matrix A.
Hence, the number of minors in determinant of A is 9.
Question:
The sum of products of elements of any row with the cofactors of corresponding elements is equal to ........ .
Solution:
= Sum of products of elements of R_{1} with their corresponding cofactors.
Hence, the sum of products of elements of any row with the cofactors of corresponding elements is equal to value of the determinant.
