I am not sure, but here is my best guess.


 


 


Sample Space = 2^9


 


(There are 9 positions, each position has two possiblities (-1 or +1) )


 


Favourable Outcomes :


 


Number of -1 in each row or coloumn should be odd.


So we get two cases here.


(i) No. of -1 in each row and coloumn is 3


(ii) No. of -1 in each row and coloumn is 1


 


Case 1:


 


This case can occur only when all the elements in the matrix is -1.


 


No. of favourable cases = 1


 


Case 2:


 


Consider the matrix row wise.


In the first row, you can put the -1 in any of the 3 places.


In the second row, you can put the -1 in two places (no below the previous one)


In the third row, you can put the -1 in only one place (remaining one, not below the other two).


 


So you get 3*2*1 = 6 possibilities in this case.


 


Total no. of favourable outcome = 6+1 = 7


 


So required probability is 7/29 ..

Okay I missed a case.


 


All digits in a single row are -1. Rest of the elements are 1.


So we get 3 more cases.


 


So Probability = 10/2^9

(1 -w -w²) 5 = 32
 
 
Hii shah as you know 1 + w +w ² = 0 whem w is cube root of unity.hence you can write it as -w -w² = 1 therefore 2^5 is 32.. . . . . . . . ….. . . . .

if period of function cos(nx).sin(5x/n) is 3 pi, then number of integral values of n are
 
 
cos(n(x+3Npi).sin(5(x+3Npi)/n)= cos nx . sin 5x/n, equating and solving equation gives us the values the integral values of n are±1,±3,±5,±15
