110.201 Linear Algebra 4th Quiz April 7, 2005 Problem 1 Find an orthogonal basis for the plane x - y + z = 0 , viewed as a subspace of R 3 . Problem 2 Let ~e 1 ,~e 2 ,~e 3 be the standard basis of R 3 . Consider the plane V spanned by ~e 1 and ~e 2 . a. For a given vector ~w = ( a,b,c ) R 3 , calculate the vector ~u V that minimizes the distance between V and ~w , i.e. find ~u V such that k ~u - ~w k ≤ k ~v - ~w k
