Step 1

To find the truth or falsity of the given statements

Step 2

a) LTRUE: the product of any two complex numbers a+ib and c+id is again a complex number.

Step 3

b)FALSE: By definition, a square matrix is singular if its determinant is 0. The example shown proves th... help_outlineImage Transcriptioncloseb)FALSE: The matrices 1 0 0 0 are both sin gular A ,В. 0 0 0 1 1 0 is not sin gular 0 1 but A+ B det(A) det(B) 0,but det(A+ B) 1 So, A,B sin gular,but A+B is not fullscreen
