2. 1/1 points | Previous Answers HoltLinAlg1 2.3.017. A matrix A is given. Determine if the homogeneous system (where x and 0 have the appropriate number of components) has any nontrivial solutions. A x = A = 1 2 1 3 2 1 2 0 5 A x = 0 has nontrivial solutions. A x = 0 has only the trivial solution. 0 2 3 3 0
3. 1/1 points | Previous Answers HoltLinAlg1 2.3.021. Determine by inspection (that is, with only minimal calculations) if the given vectors form a linearly dependent or linearly independent set. Justify your answer. Solution or Explanation Linearly dependent. Apply the theorem below. Suppose that is a set of vectors in R n . If then the set is linearly dependent. Linearly independent. The vectors are not scalar multiples of each other. Linearly dependent. Notice that u v + 3 w = 0 Linearly independent. If { u 1 , u 2 , , u m } is a set of vectors in R n and n < m , then the set is linearly independent. Linearly dependent. If { u 1 , u 2 , , u m } is a set of vectors in R n and n < m , then the set is linearly dependent. Linearly dependent. Notice that v = 2 u , so 2 u v = 0 { u 1 , u 2 , , u m } n < u = , v = , w = 3 1 6 5 1 7 . . m ,
