Step 1
Since you have posted a multiple sub-parts problems ,we solve first 3 sub-parts for you .To get the remaining sub-parts solved please repost the complete question ,and mention sub-parts to be solved.
We have given some matrices and we have to determine which matrices are non-singular among them.
Step 2 First note that a matrix A is said to be nonsingular if $det\left(A\right)\ne 0$.We will use this to determine the non singularity of the matrices .
a) we have $A=\left[\begin{array}{ccc}1& 2& -3\\ -1& 2& 3\\ 0& 8& 0\end{array}\right]$
Now $det\left(A\right)=1×\left(0-24\right)-2×\left(0-0\right)-3×\left(-8-0\right)=-24+24=0$
Since determinant is 0 so the matrix is singular ,not non-singular.
b) $B=\left[\begin{array}{ccc}1& 2& -3\\ -1& 2& 3\\ 0& 1& 1\end{array}\right]$
Now $det\left(B\right)=1×\left(2-3\right)-2×\left(-1-0\right)-3×\left(-1-0\right)=-1+2+3=4\ne 0$
Sine the determinant is non-zero so the matrix is non-singular .
c) $C=\left[\begin{array}{ccc}1& 1& 2\\ -1& 3& 4\\ -5& 7& 8\end{array}\right]$
Now, $det\left(C\right)=1×\left(24-28\right)-1×\left(-8+20\right)+2×\left(-7+15\right)=0$
Since determinant is 0 so the matrix is singular ,not non-singular.
