Unformatted text preview: A x = b . EXAMPLE. Find a leastsquares solution of A x = b when A = 121 2 3 2 5 and b = 3 14 2 . Now nd the leastsquares error associated with this leastsquares solution. This is the distance from b to A x . FACT. If A has linearly independent columns and A = QR is a QR factorization of A , then A x = b has a unique leastsquares solution given by x = R1 Q T b .
