With 5133 : 0 in Ar = b, particular solution is (8 — 5 0). 80 general: (8 — 201, —5 + or, oz). Problem 2: 1 0 0 (a) ISA: 1 1 0 invertible?

Then (A + B)T 2 AT + BT : A + B; so A + B is symmetric, and hence is also in S. Similarly ifA E S and c is scalar, then (cA)T : C(AT) : C(A) 2 CA, so that CA is symmetric, and hence is also in S. ...

    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.
