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

If p , q, n , l > 0 and the ratio of the roots of equation : lX^2 + nx + n = 0 be p:q then proove that p/q^1/2 + q /p^1/2 – n/l^1/2 = 0
 
 
Hello student, the ratio is p : q so let roots bept and qt. so pt + qt = - n/l => p + q = - n/(lt) and pqt^2 = n/l => pq = n/(lt^2) now (p/q)^1/2 + (q/p)1/^2 = (p + q)/(pq)^(1/2) =...

Write cos^2(x) as 1/(1 + tan ^2(x)) and then tanx= y and then solve using partial fractions.
