7:  

 In the matrix equation Px = q. which of the following is a necessary condition for the existence of at least one solution for the unknown vector x?

A. Augmented matrix [Pq] must have the same rank as matrix P
B. Vector q must have only non-zero elements
C. Matrix P must be singular
D. None of these
 
 

Option: A

Explanation :
According to Rouche's theorem, the system is consistent if and only if the coefficient matrix and the augmented matrix K are of the same rank, otherwise the system is inconsistent.

Matrix, A =

 
cosΘ sinΘ 0
sinΘ cosΘ 0
0 0 1
 
A.

orthogonal

B.

non-singular

C.

have A-1 exists

D.

both (b) & (c)

 
 

Option: D

Explanation :

Determinant A = 1 (cos2Θ + sin2Θ) Hence A is non-singular and A-1 exists
