Math 136 Assignment #1 1. Find the equation of the circle x 2 + y 2 + ax + by + c = 0 passing through the points (1 , 1), (5 , - 3), and ( - 3 , 3). 2. Find conditions on a so that the following system has (a) one solution, (b) no solution, or (c) infinitely many solutions. x + 2 y - 4 z = 4 3 x - y + 13 z = 2 4 x + y + a 2 z = a + 3 3. Find a , b and c such that x 2 - x + 3 ( x 2 + 2)(2 x - 1) = ax + b x 2 + 2 + c 2 x - 1 (Hint: Multiply through by ( x 2 + 2)(2 x - 1) and equate coefficients of powers of x .) 4. If ad 6 = bc , show that ± a b c d ² has reduced row-echelon form ± 1 0 0 1 ² . 5. Show that any two rows of a matrix can be interchanged by using elementary row operations
