NAME: Math 415 — Final practice Total points: 100 . Please show your work and explain all answers. Cal- culators, computers, books and notes are not allowed. Suggestion: even if you cannot complete a problem, write out the part of the solution you know. You can get partial credit for it. 1. [10 points] Solve the following linear system. x + y - 2 z + w = 2 x + 2 w = 1 x + 2 y - z = 1 x + y + z + w = 0 1
