Definition
A number arranged in rows and columns which enclosed in large brackets or round brackets with a rectangular arrangement is called matrix. It is represented by capital letters . Here, its plural form is matrices .
For eg ;
A = \(\begin{bmatrix} 2 & 3 \\ 1 & 4 \end{bmatrix}\) B = \(\begin{bmatrix} 2 & 1 & 3 \\ 6 & 4 & 2 \end{bmatrix}\)
C = \(\begin {bmatrix} 4 & 2 \\ -3 & 2 \\ 1 & 0\end{bmatrix}\)
Rows and colums of a matrix
Matrix is a rectangular arrangement of numbers which contain elements in the form of row and column .Here, a column is usually a vertical line and row is a horizontal line .
eg;
A = \(\begin{bmatrix} 3 & 2 \\ 1 & 5\end{bmatrix}\)
This matrix A has two rows and two columns .
Order of matrix
The number of rows and columns present in a matrix gives the order of a matrix .
eg;
A = \(\begin {bmatrix} 3 & 1 & 2 \\ 5 & 4 & 6 \end {bmatrix}\)
Matrix A has 2 rows and 3 columns So, its order is 2 x 3.And it i read as 2 by 3.
Types of Matrices.
1.Row Matrix
A matrix having only one row is known as a matrix row . It can have any number of columns .
eg; A = \(\begin {bmatrix} -3 & 1 & 2\end{bmatrix}\)
It has only one row .
B = \(\begin{bmatrix} -1 & 2\end {bmatrix}\)
It has only one row .
Column Matrix
2.A matrix having only one column but any number of rows is known as a column matrix .
eg; A =\(\begin{bmatrix} -1 \\2 \\ 3 \end{bmatrix}\) B = \(\begin {bmatrix} 1 \\ 2 \end{bmatrix}\)
Here, A and B both are matrics have only one column .
3.Rectangular Matrix
A matrix having unequal number of rows and columns is known as a rectangular matrix .But,the number of rows and columns should not be equal .
A = \(\begin{bmatrix} 2 & -3 & 4 \\ 7 & 0 & 1 \end{bmatrix}\)
Here matrix A has 2 rows and 3 columns is unequal .So, it is rectangular matrix .
B = \(\begin{bmatrix} 1 & -4 \\ 2 & 5 \\ 3 & 6 \end{bmatrix}\)
4.Zero Matrix
A matrix having each of the elements zero ( 0 ) is known as a null or zero matrix .
O = \(\begin {bmatrix} 0 & 0 & 0 \\ 0 & 0 & 0\end{bmatrix}\)
It is a null matrix which is of order 2 x 3.
Square Matrix
A matrix whose number of rows and columns are equal is called a square matrix .
A = \(\begin{bmatrix} 1 & 2 \\ 3 & 4 \end{bmatrix}\) B = \(\begin{bmatrix} 3 & 2 & 1 \\ 4 & 6 & 5 \\ 7 & 9 & 8 \end{bmatrix}\)
Then, In matrix A and B the number of rows and columns both are equal . So, they are squar matrix.
5.Equal Matrices
A pair of matrices having same order and equal corresponding elements are said to be equal matrices .
eg
A = \(\begin{bmatrix} 2 & 3 \\ 4 & 5 \end{bmatrix}\) B = \(\begin{bmatrix} 2 & 3 \\ 4 & 5\end{bmatrix}\)
Here, matrices A and B are said to be equal matrices as their order is same as well as their corresponding elements are equal .
6.Operation on matrices
In this level we shall only see how matrices are added and subtracted . Let's look at the following examples.
A = \(\begin{bmatrix} 1 & 2 \\ 3 & 4 \end{bmatrix}\) and B = \(\begin{bmatrix} 5 & 6 \\ 7 & 8\end{bmatrix}\)
A + B = ?
Here, as the order of both the matrices is 2 x 2. we can add them
then, A + B = \(\begin {bmatrix} 1 + 5 & 2 + 6 \\ 3 + 7 & 4 +8 \end{bmatrix}\) [ We add the corresponding elements ]
=\(\begin{bmatrix} 6 & 8\\ 10 & 12 \end{bmatrix}\)
Again,
A = \(\begin{bmatrix} 1 & 2 \\ 3 & 4 \end{bmatrix}\) C = \(\begin{bmatrix} 5 \\ 6 \end{bmatrix}\)
A + C = ? [ Order is not equal so, no addition is possible ]
= \(\begin{bmatrix} 1 & 2 \\ 3 & 4\end{bmatrix}\) + \(\begin{bmatrix} 5 \\ 6 \end{bmatrix}\)
As the order of these two matrices A and C are not the same we can not add them .
Now,
B - A = ?
so, B - A
= \(\begin{bmatrix} 5 - 1 & 6 - 2 \\ 7 - 3 & 8 - 4 \end{bmatrix}\)
= \(\begin{bmatrix} 4 & 4 \\ 4 & 4\end{bmatrix}\)
Solution
A order 2\(\times\)3
It means matrix A should have 2 rows and 3 columns.
A = \(\begin {bmatrix} 1&2&5\\ 2&4&6\\\end {bmatrix}\)
Solution
Here, C order 3\(\times\)3
It means matrix C must have 3 rows and 3 columns.
C= \(\begin {bmatrix} 2 & 5& 8\\ 1 & 4 & 7 \\ 3 & 6 & 9\\\end {bmatrix}\)
Solution
A= \(\begin {bmatrix}2&5 \\ -5&3 \\ 9&7 \\\ \end {bmatrix} \)
This is rectangular matrix.
It's order is 3 \(\times\) 2.
Solution
P= \(\begin{bmatrix}1&2&3\\4&5&6\\7&8&9\end{bmatrix}\)
Here, Rows present in matrix P= 3
Columns present in matrix p = 3
Therefore, Order of Matrix = 3 \(\times\) 3
Solution
\(\begin {bmatrix} a&5\\6&b\end {bmatrix}\) = \(\begin {bmatrix} 7&c\\d&4\end {bmatrix}\)
Here, As the matrices are equal, their corresponding elements are also equal.
So, a = 7, b = 4, c = 5 and d = 6.
