(i)

(ii)

Question 4:

Question 5:

Find values of and if , where

Also,

By equality of matrices we know that each element of A is equal to the corresponding element of that is for all and .

And

Question 6:

If possible, find the sum of the matrices A and B, where

Here, A and B are of different orders. Also, we know that addition of two matrices A and B is possible only if order of both the matrices A and B should be same.

Hence, the sum of matrices A and B is not possible.

Question 7:
