Suppose A is a 4 × 3 matrix, and the complete solution to Ax = 1 4 1 1 is x = 1 1 + c 2 1 , c ∈ R (a) Find the second and the third columns of A . (b) Determine the ranks of the coefficient matrix and the augmented matrix. Give all the known information about the first column of A . Solution: (a) Let b T = [1 4 4 1]. From the particular solution when c = 0 it follows that column 2 + column 3 = b. The homogenous solution says that 2column 2 + column 3 = 0 . From these we obtain column 2 =- b, column 3 = b (b) We have dim Null( A ) = 1, which means rank( A ) = 2. Since the system is consistent, we) = 2....
