[27 points] A and B are real matrices of order 4 with determinants 3, and 7 respectively. Answer the following questions: 1. det( A ) = ( 1) 4 3 = 3 2. det A T = 3 3. det B 1 = 7 1 = 1 / 7 4. det( AB ) = 3 7 = 21 5. If 1 + i and 2 3 i are complex eigenvalues of A , what are its other two eigenvalues? 1 i and 2 + 3 i . 6. The row space of A equals: R 4 7. The product of the eigenvalues of A T equals det A T = 3: 8. The product of the eigenvalues of B 1 equals ( 1) 4 det B 1 = 1 / 7: 9. The dot product of the first column vector of A with the second row vector of A 1 equals: 0 (since A 1 A = I 4 ) 1 2. [14 points] Let A = bracketleftBigg 8 3 1 4 bracketrightBigg . Determine an invertible matrix Q that diagonalizes A : Q 1 AQ = D and the diagonal matrix D . The characteristic plynomial of A equals 2 12 + 35 = (  5)(  7) . Hence the eigenvalues of A are 5 , 7. We need to find an eigenvector of A for each of these eigenvalues. 5 I 2 A = bracketleftBigg 3 3 1 1 bracketrightBigg ....
