Department of Economics Ryerson University ECN230-Mathematics For Economics Problem Set #6 - Solutions EXERCISE 5.1 Problem 5: (a) Interchange row 2 and row 3 in A to get a matrix A 1 .I n A 1 keep row 1 as is, but add row 1 to row 2, to get a matrix A 2 .In A 2 ,d iv iderow 2 by 5. Then multiply the new row 2 by 3, and ass the result to row 3. Finally, multiply row 3 by 5 42 . The resulting echelon matrix: A 3 = 151 01 1 5 001 contains three nonzero rows. Hence, r ( A )=3. (b) Interchange row 1 and row 3 in B to get a matrix B 1 B 1 ide row 1 by 6. Then multiply the new row 1 by 3, and add the result to row 2, to get B 2 B 2 , multiply row 2 by 2, then add the new row 2 to row 3. The resulting echelon matrix: B 3 = 1 1 6 0 014 000 has two nonzero rows. Hence, r ( B ) = 2. There is linear dependence in B : v 0 1 = v 0 3 2 v 0 2 .Ma t r ix B is singular. (c) Interchange row 2 and row 3 of matrix C , to get matrix C 1 C 1 , divide row 1 by 7. Then, multiply the new row 1 by 8, and add the result to row 2, to get C 2 n C 2
