Study Notes
Matrices (9th Class BISE Lahore)
Definition and Notation
- A matrix is a rectangular array of numbers, symbols, or expressions arranged in rows and columns.
- Matrices are denoted by uppercase letters (e.g., A, B, C) and are enclosed in square brackets
[]
. - The size of a matrix is defined by the number of rows (m) and columns (n), and is written as m × n.
Types of Matrices
- Row Matrix: A matrix with only one row (1 × n).
- Column Matrix: A matrix with only one column (m × 1).
- Square Matrix: A matrix with an equal number of rows and columns (m × m).
- Diagonal Matrix: A square matrix with non-zero elements only on the main diagonal.
- Zero Matrix: A matrix with all elements equal to zero.
Operations on Matrices
- Addition: Matrices can be added element-wise, but only if they have the same size (m × n).
- Scalar Multiplication: A matrix can be multiplied by a scalar (number), which multiplies each element of the matrix by that number.
Properties of Matrix Operations
- Commutativity of Addition: The order of matrices in addition does not change the result.
- Associativity of Addition: The order in which matrices are added does not change the result.
- Distributivity of Scalar Multiplication: Scalar multiplication can be distributed over matrix addition.
Important Concepts
- Identity Matrix: A square matrix with all elements on the main diagonal equal to 1, and all other elements equal to 0.
- Invertible Matrix: A square matrix with an inverse matrix, denoted by A^(-1).
