Math 415 Midterm II 1. (15 points) Determine whether the following vectors are linearly independent in R 2 × 2 . ± - 1 - 1 2 0 ² , ± 1 1 - 1 - 2 ² , ± 0 0 - 1 2 ² , ± 1 0 0 2 ² . Solution: No. Consider the determinant det - 1 - 1 2 0 1 1 - 1 - 2 0 0 - 1 2 1 0 0 2 = 0 So they are linearly dependent. 2. (15 points) Determine the kernel and range of the linear transformation L : P 3 P 4 defined by L ( p ( x )) = x 2 p 0 ( x ) - xp ( x ) + p (0) Solution: Let p ( x ) = ax 2 + bx + c , then L ( p ( x )) = ax 3 - cx + c . Then for p ( x ) to be in the kernel, we have a = c = 0, so Kernel ( L ) = Span ( x ). The range of L is Span ( x 3 , - x + 1). Page 2 Please go on to the next page. . .
