Find the values of x and y respectively if (begin{pmatrix} 1 & 0 \ -1…

Find the values of x and y respectively if
(begin{pmatrix} 1 & 0 \ -1 & -1\ 2 & 2 end{pmatrix}) + (begin{pmatrix} x & 1 \ -1 & 0\ y & -2 end{pmatrix}) = (begin{pmatrix} -2 & 1 \ -2 & -1\ -3 & 0 end{pmatrix})

  • A.
    -3, -2
  • B.
    -5, -3
  • C.
    -2, -5
  • D.
    -3, -5
Correct Answer: Option D
Explanation

(begin{pmatrix} 1 & 0 \ -1 & -1\ 2 & 2 end{pmatrix}) + (begin{pmatrix} x & 1 \ -1 & 0\ y & -2 end{pmatrix}) = (begin{pmatrix} -2 & 1 \ -2 & -1\ -3 & 0 end{pmatrix})
therefore, (x, y) = (-3, -5) respectively
