Unformatted text preview: Math 221 Problem Set 8 Solutions 6.1: 2 Compute the determinant of A = 2 3 4 5 . Is A invertible? det 2 3 4 5 = 2 * 5- 3 * 4 = 10- 12 =- 2. 6.1: 22 Compute the determinant of A = cos k 1- sin k 2 sin k cos k . For which values of k is A invertible? det cos k 1- sin k 2 sin k cos k = 2cos 2 k + 2sin 2 k = 2. Therefore, A is invertible for every value of k . 6.1: 34 Compute the determinant of A = 4 5 0 0 3 6 0 0 2 7 1 4 1 8 2 3 . det A = det 4 5 3 6 det 1 4 2 3 = (24- 15)(3- 8) =- 45. 6.1: 52 For n 4 , define the matrix D n as A n except with (1 , 2) , (2 , 1) entries being 0, and (1 , 3) , (3 , 1) entries being 1. For example, D 4 = 2 0 1 0 0 2 1 0 1 1 2 1 0 0 1 2 Compute det D n in terms of det A n- 1 and det A n- 3 . Find a closed form for det D n . For which n is det D n = 0 ?...
