Answer :- 2 5- 7 8 3 5 2 1 7 2 2 =- 2 3 0 0 5 2 1 7 2 2 =- 2 · 3 2 1 2 2 =- 12 . (b) Compute A- 1 , where A = 1 2- 4 0 1 2 0 0 1 Answer : 1 2- 4 1 0 0 0 1 2 0 1 0 0 0 1 0 0 1 ∼ 1 2 0 1 0 4 0 1 0 0 1- 2 0 0 1 0 0 1 ∼ 1 0 0 1- 2 8 0 1 0 0 1- 2 0 0 1 0 1 . Hence A- 1 = 1- 2 8 1- 2 1 . 2 2. (a) Find all the eigenvalues of the matrix A = 1- 3- 3- 3 . Answer : det( A- λI ) = 1- λ- 3- 3- 3- λ = (1- λ )(- 3- λ )- 9 = λ 2 +2 λ- 12 = 0 . This gives λ =- 1 ± √ 13 . (b) Find Nul A , where A is as above. Answer : Note that det A =- 12 6 = 0. Hence Nul A = { } . 3 3. (a) Let P 3 be the vector space of polynomials with degree less than or equal to 3. Let B = { 1 , 1+ t, 1+ t + t 2 , 1+ t + t 2 + t 3 } . Show that B is linearly independent. Answer : Let c 1 · 1 + c 2 (1 + t ) + c 3 (1 + t + t 2 ) + c 4 (1 + t + t 2 + t 3 ) = 0 ....
