Question 1.
Find the rank of the following matrices. Solution: A has at least one non-zero minor of order 2. $$\rho(\mathrm{A})$$ = 2

Question 2.
Find the rank of the following matrices. Solution: The last equivalent matrix is in the echelon form. It has three non-zero rows.
∴ $$\rho(\mathrm{A})$$ = 3; Here A is of order 3 × 4

Question 3.
Find the rank of the following matrices. Solution:  The last equivalent matrix is in the echelon form. The number of non-zero rows in this matrix is two. A is a matrix of order 3 × 4. ∴ $$\rho(\mathrm{A})$$ = 2

Question 4.
Using elementary transformations find the inverse of the following matrix Solution:  Question 5.
Using elementary transformations find the inverse of the following matrices Solution: Question 6.
Using elementary transformations find the inverse of the following matrices Solution: Question 7.
Using elementary transformations, find the inverse of the following matrices Solution:  Question 8.
Using elementary transformations, find the inverse of the following matrices Solution:   Question 9.
Using elementary transformations, find the inverse of the following matrices Solution:  Question 10.
Using elementary transformations, find the inverse of the following matrices Solution: Since R2 has all numbers zero, Thus inverse of matrix A does not exist.
