** The number of attempts made in three villages X, Y and Z are given below:**

** (i) (ii) (iii)**

** 400 300 100**

** 300 250 75**

** 500 400 150**

** Find the total cost incurred by the organization for the three villages separately, using matrices.**

** Write one value generated by the organization in the society.**

** Solution.** The number of attempts made in three villages X, Y and Z can be represented by the 3 x 3 matrix.

Hence the total cost incurred by the organization for the three villages separately are Rs 30,000, Rs 23,000 and Rs 39,000.
