## NCERT Solutions for Class 12 Maths Chapter 4 – Determinants Miscellaneous Exercise

#### Question 1:

Prove that the determinant is independent of θ.

Hence, Î” is independent of Î¸.

#### Question 2:

Without expanding the determinant, prove that

Hence, the given result is proved.

#### Question 3:

Evaluate

Expanding along C3, we have:

#### Question 4:

If ab and are real numbers, and,
Show that either a + b + c = 0 or a = b = c.

Expanding along R1, we have:
Hence, if Δ = 0, then either a + b + c = 0 or a = b = c.

#### Question 5:

#### Question 16:

Solve the system of the following equations

Let
Then the given system of equations is as follows:
This system can be written in the form of AX B, where
A
Thus, A is non-singular. Therefore, its inverse exists.
Now,
A11 = 75, A12 = 110, A13 = 72
A21 = 150, A22 = −100, A23 = 0
A31 = 75, A32 = 30, A33 = − 24

#### Question 17:

If abc, are in A.P., then the determinant
A. 0 B. 1 C. D. 2x

Here, all the elements of the first row (R1) are zero.
Hence, we have Δ = 0.

#### Question 18:

If xyz are nonzero real numbers, then the inverse of matrix is
A.  B.
C.  D.

#### Question 19:

Let, where 0 ≤ θ≤ 2π, then
A. Det (A) = 0
B. Det (A) ∈ (2, ∞)
C. Det (A) ∈ (2, 4)
D. Det (A)∈ [2, 4]
