Question

Find the values of x and y respectively if
\(\begin{pmatrix} 1 & 0 \\ -1 & -1\\ 2 & 2 \end{pmatrix}\) + \(\begin{pmatrix} x & 1 \\ -1 & 0\\ y & -2 \end{pmatrix}\) = \(\begin{pmatrix} -2 & 1 \\ -2 & -1\\ -30 & 0 \end{pmatrix}\)

Options

A) -3, -2

B) -5, -3

C) -2, -5

D) -3, -5

The correct answer is D.

Explanation:

\(\begin{pmatrix} 1 & 0 \\ -1 & -1\\ 2 & 2 \end{pmatrix}\) + \(\begin{pmatrix} x & 1 \\ -1 & 0\\ y & -2 \end{pmatrix}\) = \(\begin{pmatrix} -2 & 1 \\ -2 & -1\\ -30 & 0 \end{pmatrix}\)
therefore, (x, y) = (-3, -5) respectively

  • \(\begin{pmatrix} 1 & 0 \\ -1 & -1\\ 2 & 2 \end{pmatrix}\) + \(\begin{pmatrix} x & 1 \\ -1 & 0\\ y & -2 \end{pmatrix}\) = \(\begin{pmatrix} -2 & 1 \\ -2 & -1\\ -30 & 0 \end{pmatrix}\)
    therefore, (x, y) = (-3, -5) respectively
