**MATHS**

In the matrix , write:

(i) The order of the matrix (ii) The number of elements,

(iii) Write the elements *a*_{13}, *a*_{21}, *a*_{33}, *a*_{24}, *a*_{23}

Answer

**(i) **In the given matrix, the number of rows is 3 and the number of columns is 4.

Therefore, the order of the matrix is 3 × 4.

**(ii) **Since the order of the matrix is 3 × 4, there are 3 × 4 = 12 elements in it.

**(iii) ***a*_{13} = 19, *a*_{21} = _{35}, *a*_{33} = −5, *a*_{24} = 12, *a*_{23} =

**Question 2:**

If a matrix has 24 elements, what are the possible order it can have? What, if it has 13 elements?

**Answer**

We know that if a matrix is of the order *m *× *n*, it has *mn *elements. Thus, to find all the possible orders of a matrix having 24 elements, we have to find all the ordered pairs of natural numbers whose product is 24.

The ordered pairs are: (1, 24), (24, 1), (2, 12), (12, 2), (3, 8), (8, 3), (4, 6), and (6, 4)

Hence, the possible orders of a matrix having 24 elements are:

1 × 24, 24 × 1, 2 × 12, 12 × 2, 3 × 8, 8 × 3, 4 × 6, and 6 × 4

(1, 13) and (13, 1) are the ordered pairs of natural numbers whose product is 13.

Hence, the possible orders of a matrix having 13 elements are 1 × 13 and 13 × 1.
