Step 1
To solve this problem, we use the standard result of matrix
Ans: We know that
\(det(A \cdot B)= det(A) \cdot det(B)\)
and
\(det(A)=det(A^T)\)\)
Step 2
Ans : Given that \(det(A)=2, det(B)=-2\)
\(det(ABA^T)=det(A) \cdot det(BA^T) \ \ \ \left\{det(A \cdot B)=det(A) \cdot det(B)\right\}\)
\(=det(A) \cdot det(B) \cdot det(A^T) \ \ \ \left\{det(A)=det(A^T)\right\}\)
\(=det(A) \cdot det(B) \cdot det(A)\)
\(=2 \cdot (-2) \cdot 2\)
\(det(ABA^T)=-8\)

In the following question there are statements which are TRUE and statements which are FALSE.
Choose all the statements which are FALSE.
1. If the number of equations in a linear system exceeds the number of unknowns, then the system must be inconsistent - thus no solution.
2. If B has a column with zeros, then AB will also have a column with zeros, if this product is defined.
3. If AB + BA is defined, then A and B are square matrices of the same size/dimension/order.
4. Suppose A is an n x n matrix and assume A^2 = O, where O is the zero matrix. Then A = O.
5. If A and B are n x n matrices such that AB = I, then BA = I, where I is the identity matrix.
