(a) Given that $A=$
$$
\left(\begin{array}{cc}
3 & x \\
x+1 & 2
\end{array}\right)
$$
and $B=$
$$
\left(\begin{array}{ll}
1 & 2 \\
3 & 0
\end{array}\right)
$$
find values of $x$ for which $A B$ is a singular matrix.

\begin{equation}
\begin{array}{l}
\text { (a) }\left(\begin{array}{cc}
3 & x \\
x+1 & 2
\end{array}\right)\left(\begin{array}{ll}
1 & 2 \\
3 & 0
\end{array}\right)=\left(\begin{array}{cc}
3+3 x & 6 \\
x+7 & 2+2
\end{array}\right)\\
\left(\begin{array}{cc}
3+3 x & 6 \\
x+7 & 2+2
\end{array}\right)=0\\
(3+3 \mathrm{~s})(2 \mathrm{z}+2)-6(x+7)=0\\
6 s+6 x^{2}+6 s-6 s-36=0\\
6 x^{2}+6 s-36=0\\
x^{2}+x-6=0\\
(x+3)(x-2)=0\\
x=2 \text { or }-3
\end{array}

$3 x+5 y=165$
(b) (i) $2 z+4 y=120$
(ii) $\left(\begin{array}{ll}3 & 5 \\ 2 & 4\end{array}\right)\left(\begin{array}{l}x \\ y\end{array}\right)=\left(\begin{array}{l}165 \\ 120\end{array}\right)$
$$
\begin{array}{l}
\quad \operatorname{Let} A=\left(\begin{array}{ll}
3 & 5 \\
2 & 4
\end{array}\right) \\
A^{-1} & \begin{array}{l}
1 \\

\end{array}\left(\begin{array}{cc}
4 & -5 \\

\end{array}\right) \\
& \frac{1}{2}\left(\begin{array}{cc}

\end{array}\right)\left(\begin{array}{ll}
3 & 5 \\
2 & 4
\end{array}\right)\left(\begin{array}{l}

y
\end{array}\right)=\frac{1}{2}\left(\begin{array}{cc}

\end{array}\right)\left(\begin{array}{l}
165 \\

\end{array}\right) \\
\left(\begin{array}{ll}
1 & 0 \\
0 & 1
\end{array}\right)\left(\begin{array}{l}

\end{array}\right)=\left(\begin{array}{l}
30 \\

\end{array}\right) \\
\left(\begin{array}{l}
x \\

\end{array}\right)=\left(\begin{array}{l}

\end{array}

Cost of an exercise book = Ksh. 30 Cost of a pen Ksh. 15

 

(iii) $2 \times 36 \times 30+36 \times 15$
$=$ Ksh 2700
