# Find the value of a, b, c and d from the equation: [a - b 2a + c 2a - b 3c + d] = [- 1 5 0 13]

Q7.    Find the value of a, b, c and d from the equation:

$\begin{bmatrix} a -b & 2a + c\\ 2a - b & 3c + d \end{bmatrix} = \begin{bmatrix} -1 & 5\\ 0 & 13 \end{bmatrix}$

$\begin{bmatrix} a -b & 2a + c\\ 2a - b & 3c + d \end{bmatrix} = \begin{bmatrix} -1 & 5\\ 0 & 13 \end{bmatrix}$

If two matrices are equal, then their corresponding elements are also equal

$a-b=-1$          $.............................1$

$2a+c=5$            $.............................2$

$2a-b=0$            $.............................3$

$3c+d=13$          $.............................4$

Solving equation 1 and 3 , we get

$a=1 \, \, \, \, and \, \, \, \, b=2$

Putting the value of a in equation 2, we get

$c=3$

Putting the value of c in equation 4 , we get

$d=4$
