Plugging back into either equation gives a = 4, so 4 2 1 + 3 3 2 = 1 2 5.10 We want to know if there exist scalars c 1 ,c 2 ,c 3 such that c 1 2 1 1 + c 2 5 8 + c 3 1 6 2 = 8 5 11 This leads to the system of equations 2 c 1 + 5 c 2 + c 3 = 8 c 1 + 8 c 2 + 6 c 3 = 5 c 1 2 c 3 = 11 which has augmented matrix A = 2 5 1 1 8 6 1 0 2 8 5 11 Since rref( A ) = 1 0 2 0 1 1 0 0 1 the last equation of the reduced system is 0 = 1, so there are no solutions. Thus v is not in the span of the given set of vectors. 5.11 We need to find a solution to the system of equations that corresponds to the following matrix of coefficients, which we row reduce : 1 2 5 11 8 1 8 2 5 1 0 12 11 1 0 12 11 2 5 11 8 1 8 2 5 1 0 12 11 0 5 35 30 0 8 14 6 1 0 12 11 0 1 7 6 0 4 7 3 1 0 12 11 0 1 7 6 0 0 21 21 1 0 12 11 0 1 7 6 0 0 1 1 1 0 0 1 0 1 0 1 0 0 1 1 So we conclude that 1 2 1 1  1 5 8 + 1 11 2 12 = 8 5 11 5.12 We want to solve c 1 1 1 1 1 + c 2 1 2 3 4 + c 3 4 3 2 1 = 1 5 9 13 The augmented matrix corresponding to this system is A = 1 1 4 1 2 4 1 3 2 1 4 1 1 5 9 13 Since...
