# Q.6    Find the values of x, y and z from the following equations:        (ii)             $\begin{bmatrix} x +y & 2\\ 5 + z & xy \end{bmatrix} = \begin{bmatrix} 6 &2 \\ 5 & 8 \end{bmatrix}$

(ii)

$\begin{bmatrix} x +y & 2\\ 5 + z & xy \end{bmatrix} = \begin{bmatrix} 6 &2 \\ 5 & 8 \end{bmatrix}$

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

$\therefore$    $x+y=6$   $\cdot \cdot \cdot \cdot \cdot \cdot \cdot \cdot \cdot (i)$

$x=6-y$

$xy=8$     $\cdot \cdot \cdot \cdot \cdot \cdot \cdot \cdot \cdot (ii)$

Solving equation (i)  and (ii) ,

$(6-y)y =8$

$6y-y^{2}=8$

$y^{2}-6y+8=0$

solving this equation we get,

$y=4 \, \, and\, \, y=2$

Putting the values of y, we get

$x=2 \, \, and\, \, x=4$

And also equating the first element of the second raw

$5+z = 5$,    $z=0$

Hence,

$x=2,y=4,z=0\, \, \, \, \, and\, \, \, \, \, \, x=4,y=2,z=0$
