MA322 Matrix Algebra Answers to assigned even problems July 26 2007 Section 11 10 3 5 6 3 14 211 24 a True See the blue shaded box on page 8 b False 1 1 and i i have the same number of rows but are not row equivalent c False By de nition inconsistent means no solution d True See de nition of equivalent on page 3 1 0 0 2 1 0 1 2 1 0 2 26 Many answers For example 0 1 0 1 R1R3 0 1 0 1 R2R3 0 1 1 1 0 0 1 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 1 0 Section 12 2 a Reduced echelon b echelon c not echelon d echelon 10 11 74 212 12 is free 13 77 14 11 79 7 713 12 2 613 314 13 is free 14 is free 15 0 16 a Unique solution b In nitly many solutions 20 a Inconsistent when h 9 and k f 6 b Unique solution when h f 9 c Many solutions when h 9 and k 6 24 1f the fth column is a pivot column then the reduced echelon form of the augmented matrix will have a row like 0 0 0 0 1 Since this is the augmented matrix the system is inconsistent See theorem 2 page 30 Many answers For example 11 12 13 4 211 212 213 5 Section 13 4 Just see me if you have questions about this one 6 7211 81 13 0 311 512 7 613 0 4 1 3 9 10 11 1 12 7 13 2 2 6 5 15 12 No b is not a linear combination of a1a2 a3 1 16 Many answers for example 1V1 1vz 0 20 The span is the 12plane Section 14 2 The product is not de ned because the number of columns of the rst matrix does not equal the number of rows of the vector 3 5 12x 45 1 18 The reduced echelon form of B has row of zeros ie there is a row without a pivot position Thus the columns of B do not span R4 see theorem 4 on page 4 32 Consider the matrix that has n columns vectors and m rows with n lt m There may be at most n pivot positions since there can be only one per column Since n lt m this implies that not all rows have a pivot position Therefore the columns of this matrix do not span all of Rm again by theorem 4 page 4 34 If the equation Ax b has a unique solution then the corresponding linear system does not have any free variables That means that there is a pivot in every column of A Since A is 3 X 3 this also implies that A has a pivot in every row Therefore the columns of A must span R3 by theorem 4 Section 154 6xzg 3 1 5 4 16x 3 13 3 10 134 The solution set is a line through p parallel to q 24 a False A nontrivial solution just means that not all entries are zero Some of the entries may be zero b True See example 2 page 51 c True lf 0 is a solution then is must be true that b 0 since A 0 0 d True See the paragraph after example 3 page 53 e False This is true only if Ax b is consistent Therefore in general it is false 26 Let p be a possible solution to Ax b By theorem 6 we know that the solution set of this equation is p vh where vh is any solution to the homogeneous equation Ax 0 Therefore if p is the only solution then vh must only be zero 30 a Since there are only two pivot positions there must be a free variable because the pivot positions correspond to basic variables ie nonfree variables So there must be nontrivial solutions b Since there are only two pivot positions there is not a pivot in every row Therefore there is not a solution for every b E R3 again by theorem 4 page 43 Section 17 2 Linearly independent 10 a No h b All h 16 Linearly dependent 18 Linearly dependent 38 True lf zlvl 12V Ing 0 had a nontrivial solution then so would the equation zlvl 12V Ing 0V4 0 However we know that this is not the case since V1V2V3V4 are linearly independent meaning the vector equation zlvl 12V Ing z4V4 0 has only the trivial solution Thus V1 V2 V3 are also linearly independent Section 4 x 3 which is the unique solution 8 5 rows and 4 columns 7 20 5 3 TO TCiV1 C2V2 vap since the v s span R 61TV1 02TV2 CpTVp since T is linear 010 CPO 0 32 Pick any vector With 12 f 0 and let 5 be any negative number Use this to check and see if Tcx CTX Section 19 4 1 1 i 1 1 W2 0 1 1 0 12 Look at the rotation matrix on page 84 Note that if we let 45 7r2 we get the matrix from number 4 So the transformation from 4 is the same as a rotation counterclockwise by 7r2 2 8i 1 4 18 0 0 0 1 Section 21 4 71 3 4A7513 78 2 76 74 1 3 75 15 SAM 740 35 30 40 10ABAC1 l 72 14 2 6 12 One example 1 3 20 The second column of AB is also all zeros because Abg A0 0 22 1f the columns of B are linearly dependent then there exists a nonzero vector x such that Bx 0 From this ABx ABX 0 Since x is nonzero the columns of AB must be linearly dependent 28 uTv vTu and uvT vuT by theorem 3 Section 22 8 Since AD I A lAD A II Which implies ID A 1 or D A l 24 1f the equation Ax b has as solution for each b in R then A has a pivot position in each row Since A is square the pivots must be on the diagonal of A so A is row equivalent to In Thus A is invertible 26 Take the formula for A 1 and actually verify that AA 1 A lA I 32 Not invertible Section 23 2 Not invertible because the determinant is zero Or you could note that the second column is 732 times the rst column 4 The columns of the matrix are linearly dependent because one of the columns is zero so the matrix is not invertible 22 Statment g of the lnvertible Matrix theorem is false for H so statement d is false too Section 31 2 2 4 20 10 6 16 2 20 The determinant of the rst is ad 7 be and the determinant of the second is Mad 7 be So scaling a row by k multiplies the determinant by k Section 32 6 A constant may be factored out of a row 12 114 16 21 24 linearly independent 34 detPAP 1 detP detA detP 1 detPdetP

products of elements of A all of the cofactors are integer Since the detA is 1 we get from the inverse formula that all of the entries of A 1 are integer Section 41 2 a Given in W and any scalar c the vector 5 is in W because CI cy 02zy which is 2 0 b Let u and v 8 Yes The zero polynomial is in the set If p and q are in the set then 10 4 0 100 q0 0 and cpxo 7 cltpltogtgt 7 0 22 Yes The zero matrix is in the set If B and C are in the set then FB C FB FC 0 and for scalar k FkB MFB 0 Section 42 8 W is not a vector space because the zero vector is not in W 12 To get the zero vector we need d 712 so that the third entry 2d 1 equals zero But then its impossible for the fouth entry to be zero So this is not a vector space 28 The two systems have the form AI v and AI 51 Since we are given that the rst system is consistant we know that v is in the column space of A Since colA is a vector space we know that 51 is in the column space too Thus AI 51 must also be consistant Section 43 4 This is a basis 6 This is not a basis since it does not span R3 but they are linearly independent 24 Let A be the matrix whose columns are the basis elements Since the columns of A are linearly independent we have a pivot in every column Since we have n vectors in R the matrix is square and so there is a pivot in every row as well Therefore the columns also span R Therefore we have a basis Section 44 Section 45 4 0 2 73 0 is a basis so the dimension is 2 0 71 l6 dimnullA0 dimcolA2 26 If dimV0 the statement is obvious because the zero vector space is the only subspace of the zero vector space Otherwise H has a basis Which contains n linearly independent vectors But these vectors are also linearly independent in V Since there are n of them and V is n dimensional these also form a basis for V Section 46 8 dimnullA2 colA cannot be R4 because the vectors in colA have 5 entries 10 l 12 2 20 No Since there are 2 free variables the null space of the coefficient matrix A is 2 dimensional Since there are 8 columns the rank of A is 6 dimensional and because there are 6 equations colA is a subspace of R5 Therefore colA R5 so Ax b is consistent for all b Section 47 2 7 5 a 4 3 10 b M 4 Section 51 4 Yes A 32 18 40 3 3 24 Many solutions As an example 2 has only 2 as an eigenvalue 26 We want to know the value of A if Ax Ax Where x f 0 Now A2 AAx AAx AAX A2x But A2x 0 since A2 0 so A2x 0 as well Since x f 0 it must be that A 0 Therefore the only eigenvalue of A is zero Section 52 6A2 7 11A 40 No real eigenvalues 107A3 14A 12 18h 6 20 detAT 7 AI detAT 7 AIT detA 7 AIT detA 7 AI Section 53

Where Q PT 17 so AT is diagonalizable Section 55 2 A3i21r2 A37i 21 10 A75i5iq 37r4T5 2 71 3 71 14141 op 3
