EE441 HW#3 Solution Spring 2007 Instructor : Dr. Jonckheere TA: Ben Raskob Due Date 2/1/2007 Problem 2.3.2 v 1 , v 2 , v 3 are independent, and v 4 = v 2 - v 1 , v 5 = v 3 - v 1 , v 6 = v 3 - v 2 . Other choices are possible, but only three vectors can be independent. The number of independent vectors is the dimension of the space spanned by the v ’s. Problem 2.3.16 Solving the equation c 1 v 1 + c 2 v 2 + c 3 v 3 + c 4 v 4 = 0 is equivalent to solving the system of equations: 1 1 0 0 1 0 0 1 0 1 1 0 0 0 1 1 c 1 c 2 c 3 c 4 = 0 where the columns of the matrix are the vectors v i . Reducing to row echelon form gives: 1 1 0 0 0 1 0 - 1 0 0 1 1 0 0 0 0 1

This gives a solution other than zero for the constants. Namely, c 1 c 2 c 3 c 4 = - c 4 c 4 - c 4 c 4

Unformatted text preview: -1 1-1 1 where k is a constant. This tells us that-v 1 + v 2-v 3 + v 4 = 0. Therefore, they are not linearly independent. No solution exists for 1 1 0 0 1 0 0 1 0 1 1 0 0 0 1 1 c 1 c 2 c 3 c 4 = 1 so they do not span R 4 . Problem 2.3.26 a) True, any vector linearly independent of the basis vectors for S will extend the basis to R 6 . b) False, because the basis vectors may not be in S .

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
