## Tamilnadu Samacheer Kalvi 11th Maths Solutions Chapter 7 Matrices and Determinants Ex 7.4

Question 1.

Find the area of the triangle whose vertices are (0, 0), (1, 2) and (4, 3)

Solution:

Area of triangle with vertices

∴ Area of A with vertices (0, 0), (1, 2) and (4, 3) is

(as the area cannot be negative).

Question 2.

If (k, 2), (2, 4) and (3, 2) are vertices of the triangle of area 4 square units then determine the value of k.

Solution:

Question 3.

Identify the singular and non-singular matrices:

Solution:

(i) For a given square matrix A,

1. If |A| = 0 then it is a singular matrix.

2. If |A| ≠ 0 then it is a non singular matrix.

⇒ A is a singular matrix.

Which is a skew symmetric matrix

∴ |A| = 0 ⇒ A is a singular matrix.

Question 4.

Determine the value of a and b so that the following matrices are singular:

Solution:

expanding along R_{1}

b(4 + 4) + 7 (-6 – 1) = 0 (given)

8b + 7 (-7) = 0

(i.e.,) 8b – 49 = 0 ⇒ 8b = 49 ⇒ b = 49/8

Question 5.

If cos 2θ = 0, determine \(\left[\begin{array}{ccc}{\theta} & {\cos \theta} & {\sin \theta} \\ {\cos \theta} & {\sin \theta} & {0} \\ {\sin \theta} & {0} & {\cos \theta}\end{array}\right]^{2}\)

Solution:
