    If we call the matrix above 'A', does the inverse of A exist?

    • A.

      Yes

    • B.

      No

    Correct Answer
    B. No
    Explanation
    An inverse exists only for square matrices with a determinant that is not zero. If the determinant is zero, there is no inverse. If the matrix represents a pair of simultaneous equations, it means they are either inconsistent (parallel) or dependent (the same equation).

    E. All Matrices with a determinant of zero have no inverse
  • 21. 

    Matrix A and Matrix D are equal matrices

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement "Matrix A and Matrix D are equal matrices" is false. This means that Matrix A and Matrix D are not equal to each other. They may have different dimensions, different elements, or both.

  • 22. 

    The determinant for the matrix above is 44. The missing number is a value between 1 and 5 inclusive. What is the missing value

    Correct Answer
    5
    Explanation
    Trial and error. You don't know how to find the determinant manually, so you simply create the matrix, then substitute 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 into the missing space. Using the det() command is the fastest way to do it. It's faster than the Inverse App if you simply put your matrix inside the brackets.

    Rate this question:

  • 23. 

    P is a row matrix.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The given statement is "P is a row matrix." The correct answer is False. This means that P is not a row matrix. A row matrix is a matrix with only one row. Since the statement says that P is a row matrix, but the correct answer is False, it implies that P is not a row matrix, meaning it has more than one row.

    Rate this question:

  • 24. 

    AK is undefined, but KA is defined.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    This statement implies that there is a difference in the definitions of AK and KA. While KA is defined, meaning there is a clear understanding or explanation for it, AK is undefined, suggesting that there is no known definition or explanation for it. Therefore, the statement is true, as it confirms that KA is defined while AK is not.

    Rate this question:

  • 25. 

    The determinant for the matrix above is 26. The missing number is a value between 0 and 5 inclusive. What is the missing value?

    Correct Answer
    2
    Explanation
    Trial and error.
    You can use algebra to solve this but its faster to use the det() command and just substitute the one missing value in each time. It's faster than the Inverse App if you simply put your matrix inside the brackets.

    Rate this question:

  • 26. 

    AK is undefined, but KA is defined.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement suggests that the value of AK is undefined, meaning it does not have a specific value assigned to it. On the other hand, KA is defined, indicating that it has a specific value assigned. Therefore, the statement is true because it states a valid comparison between the undefined value of AK and the defined value of KA.

  • 27. 

    Matrix K has a determinant of 3.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Only a square matrix can have an inverse, and therefore on square matrices have a determinant.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
