**Using the
property of determinants and without expanding in Questions 1 to 5, prove that:**

**Maths Class
12 Ex 4.2 Question 1.**

**Solution:**

_{1}= C

_{3}and in the second determinant, C

_{2}= C

_{3}. Therefore, the value of each of the determinants is equal to zero.]

= 0 + 0

= 0

= R.H.S.

**Maths Class 12 Ex
4.2 Question 2.**

**Solution:**

**Maths Class
12 Ex 4.2 Question 4.**

**Solution:**

_{1}and C

_{3}are proportional, therefore the value of this determinant is 0.]

= 0

= R.H.S.

**Maths Class
12 Ex 4.2 Question 5.**

**Solution:**

**By using
properties of determinants in Questions 6 to 14, show that:**

[Since the rows R_{1} and R_{3} are the same.]

**Maths Class
12 Ex 4.2 Question 7.**

**Solution:**

**Maths Class
12 Ex 4.2 Question 8.**

**Solution:**

**Maths Class
12 Ex 4.2 Question 9.**

**Solution:**

**Maths Class
12 Ex 4.2 Question 15.**

**Let A be a square matrix of order 3 × 3, then |kA| is equal to**

**(A) k|A| (B) k²|A| (C) k³|A| (D) 3k|A|**

**Solution:**

Hence, option (C) is correct.

**Maths Class
12 Ex 4.2 Question 16.**

**Which of the following is correct:**

**(A) Determinant is a square matrix.**

**(B) Determinant is a number associated to a matrix.**

**(C) Determinant is a number associated to a square matrix.**

**(D) None of these.**

**Solution:**

We know that to every square matrix, A = [a_{ij}] of order n, we can associate a number called the determinant of
square matrix A, where a_{ij }= (i, j)^{th} element
of A.

Thus, the determinant is a number
associated to a square matrix.

Hence, option (C) is correct.
