Math 311 second practice exam Instructions: This is a closed-book exam. You have 50 minutes. Use the backs of the pages for scratch paper; if you attach more pages, write your name on every extra page you use. Make sure to show all your work, and provide clear details. Each problem is worth 10 points. 1. Let D be the differentiation operator, and I the identity operator. Let u be the function u ( x ) = cos 2 x . Find ( D 2 - I ) u. 2. Show that the polynomials { 1 , x + x 2 , x 2 } form a basis for the vector space P 2 of polynomials of degree at most 2 . 3. Find a basis for the following subspace of R 3 : Span 1 2 3 , 1 4 5 , - 1 2 1 . What is the dimension of this subspace? 4. Find the eigenvalues and the corresponding eigenvectors for the matrix 2 - 2 1 0 1 3 0 0 1 . 1
