Section 23 Solving Systems of Linear Equations 11 In the previous section we studied systems with unique solutions In this section we will study systems of linear equations that have in nitely many solutions and those that have no solution We also will study systems in which the number of variables is not equal to the number of equations in the systemi A System of Equations with an In nite Number of Solutions Example 1 The following augmented matrix in rowreduced form is equivalent to the augmented matrix of a certain system of linear equations Use this result to solve the system of equations 1 0 1 3 0 1 5 2 0 0 0 0 A System of Equations That Has No Solution Example Given the following system xyz1 3x y z4 x5y52 1 In using the GaussJordan elimination method the following equivalent matrix was obtained note this matrix is not in rowreduced form let s see why 1 1 1 1 0 4 4 1 0 0 0 1 Look at the last row It reads 0x 0y Oz 1 in other words 0 1 This is never true So the system is inconsistent and has no solution Systems with No Solution If there is a row in the augmented matrix containing all zeros to the left of the vertical line and a nonzero entry to the right of the line then the system of equations has no solution Section 213 Solving Systems of Linear Equations II Theorem I If the number of equations is greater than or equal to the number of variables in a linear system then one of the following is true at The system has no solution b The system has exactly one solution or The system has in nitely many solutions 11 If there are fewer equations than variables in a linear system then the system either has no solution or it has in nitely many solutions Example 2 Solve the system of linear equations using the GaussJordan elimination method x2y 3z 2

GaussJordan elimination method 4xy z4 8x2y 228 Section 23 Solving Systems of Linear Equations 11 Section 24 Matrices A matrix is an ordered rectangular array of numbers A matrix with m rows and n columns has size or dimension m x n The entry in the ith row and jth column is denoted by 111 A matrix with only one column or one row is called a column matrix or column vector or row matrix or row vector respectively The real numbers that make up the matrix are called entries or elements of the matrix 2 7 7 5 3 9 Example 1 Gwen A 0 10 20 1 3 11 a What is the dimension of A b identify 143 A square matrix is a matrix having the same number of rows as columns E 1 3 9 Xam e p 4 1 Equality of Matrices Two matrices are equal if they have the same dimension and their corresponding entries are

matrices of the same dimension 1 The sum A B is the matrix obtained by adding the corresponding entries in the two matrices 2 The difference A B is the matrix obtained by subtracting the corresponding entries in B from Al Laws for Matrix Addition If A B and C are matrices of the same dimension then 1 A B B A 2 ABC ABC Example 3 Refer to the following matrices 8 3 1 5 4 1 10 8 3 4 1 3 A0 9 4B 8 4 8

the n x m matrix ATWltl l elements a Example 4 Given the following matrices nd their transpose 3 0 6 a B 10 100 3 4 11 3 Scalar Multiplication A matrix A may be multiplied by a real number called a scalar in the context of matrix algebra Scalar Product If A is a matrix and c is a real number then the scalar product cA is the matrix obtained by multiplying each entry of A by c The zero matrix is one in which all entries are zero Note 0 represents the zero matrix Section 24 Matrices 3 1 2 1 4 1 2 3 i Example 5 Let A B and C nd 1fp0551b1e 3 4 7 9 6 9 1 at 2B A b BC C ZX 3A B Example 6 Solve for

of size n x p then the product AB is de ned and is a matrix of size m x p So two matrices can be multiplied if and only if the number of columns in the rst matrix is equal to the number of rows in the second matrixi Example 1 Multiple the given matrices 6 l 2 3isa1x3matrix 5 isa3x1matrix 4 When multiplied the ending matrix will be 1 x 1 6 1235 4 Here is how you multiply all 312 1911 all X b11 a12 X

Why people love StudySoup

Steve Martinelli UC Los Angeles

"There's no way I would have passed my Organic Chemistry class this semester without the notes and study guides I got from StudySoup."

Jennifer McGill UCSF Med School

"Selling my MCAT study guides and notes has been a great source of side revenue while I'm in school. Some months I'm making over $500! Plus, it makes me happy knowing that I'm helping future med students with their MCAT."

Jim McGreen Ohio University

"Knowing I can count on the Elite Notetaker in my class allows me to focus on what the professor is saying instead of just scribbling notes the whole time and falling behind."

Parker Thompson 500 Startups

"It's a great way for students to improve their educational experience and it seemed like a product that everybody wants, so all the people participating are winning."
