DETERMINANTS
Revision Assignment
Class 12 Chapter 3
QUESTION 1:Using properties of determinants, evaluate the given determinant

a + b + 2c

b + c + 2a
b
a
c + a + 2b

c
c

## Solution: Applying C1C1+C2+C3, we get

2a + 2b + 2c

= 2a + 2b + 2c

b + c + 2a
b
2a + 2b + 2c
a
c + a + 2b
1

= (2a+2b+2c) 1 b + c + 2a

b
c + a + 2b

## Applying R2R2 R1, R3R3 R1

= 2(a + b + c) 0 b + c + a

= (a+b+c)

b
0
c+a+b

b+c+a
0
0
c+a+b

= 2(a+b+c)(a+b+c)2
= 2(a+b+c)3

1 a b+c

= 1 b c+a
1 c a+b

QUESTION 5: If the value of the given determinant is 1 , what may be the value
of x

Solution

## The value of the determinant is independent of x .

x can take any value.
QUESTION 6: Expand the determinant of square matrix A = [aij]3 3,

QUESTION 7: Find the equation of the line joining A(1, 3) and B (0, 0) using
determinants.
Solution
Let P (x, y) be any point on AB. Then A, B and P are collinear points . i.e the area
of triangle ABP is zero.
