Homework, MA 213 Due: 2014-Nov-17 You may work with others to figure out how to do questions, and you are welcome to look for answers in the book, online, by talking to someone who had the course before, etc. However, you must write the answers on your own. You must also show your work (you may, of course, quote any result from the book). 1. Find the determinant. (a) 1 4 2 8 The formula for 2 × 2 determinants gives 1 · 8 - 2 · 4 = 0. (b) 2 1 1 1 1 0 6 4 1 Gauss’s Method - (1 / 2) ρ 1 + ρ 2 -→ - 3 ρ 1 + ρ 3 - 2 ρ 2 + ρ 3 -→ 2 1 1 0 1 / 2 - 1 / 2 0 0 - 1 followed by multiplying down the diagonal gives the determinant as - 1. 2. Consider the linear transformation t : R 3 R 3 represented with respect to the standard bases by this matrix. 1 0 - 1 3 1 1 - 1 0 3 (a) Compute the determinant of the matrix. Gauss’s Method - 3 ρ 1 + ρ 2 -→ ρ 1 + ρ 3 1 0 - 1 0 1 4 0 0 2 gives the determinant as 2. (b) Find the size of the box defined by these vectors.

### 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.
