Determine if the set of all 3 × 3 diagonal matrices is a vector space under the usual matrix addition and scalar multiplication. (10 Points ) BONUS. Let F [ a,b ] be the set of all real valued functions that are defined on the interval [ a,b ]. Then given any two “vectors”, f = f ( x ) and g = g ( x ), from F [ a,b ] and any scalar c , define addition and scalar multiplication as, ( f + g )( x ) = f ( x ) + g ( x ) and c f = cf ( x ), respectively. Under these operations F [ a,b ] is a vector space. Find the “zero vector” for F [ a,b ]. (3 Points )...

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
