Let $$z = {{ - 1 + \sqrt 3 i} \over 2}$$, where $$i = \sqrt { - 1}$$, and r, s $$\in$$ {1, 2, 3}. Let $$P = \left[ {\matrix{ {{{( - z)}^r}} & {{z^{2s}}} \cr {{z^{2s}}} & {{z^r}} \cr } } \right]$$ and I be the identity matrix of order 2. Then the total number of ordered pairs (r, s) for which P2 = $$-$$I is ____________.

Let M be a 3 $$\times$$ 3 matrix satisfying $$M\left[ {\matrix{ 0 \cr 1 \cr 0 \cr } } \right] = \left[ {\matrix{ { - 1} \cr 2 \cr 3 \cr } } \right]$$, $$M\left[ {\matrix{ 1 \cr { - 1} \cr 0 \cr } } \right] = \left[ {\matrix{ 1 \cr 1 \cr { - 1} \cr } } \right]$$ and $$M\left[ {\matrix{ 1 \cr 1 \cr 1 \cr } } \right] = \left[ {\matrix{ 0 \cr 0 \cr {12} \cr } } \right]$$. Then the sum of the diagonal entries of M is ___________.
