Math 601 Solutions to Homework 7 1. Find a vector in the plane that is orthogonal to the vector . B  #B  $B œ ! # $ % " # $ Ô × Õ Ø Answer: The dot product of the vector with must be zero. This gives the equation: a b a b B ßB ßB #ß$ß% " # $ #B  $B  %B œ ! " # $ We must therefore solve the following system of linear equations: B  #B  $B œ ! #B  $B  %B œ ! Ê B œ B B œ B B " # $ " # $ " $ "( ( # $ # ( $ is free Any vector satisfying these equations is a correct solution to this problem. The simplest solution is the vector . a b "(ß#ß( Note: The vector is also a correct solution to this problem as stated. The statement of a b !ß!ß! the problem should have included the word “nonzero” to exclude this possibility. 2. Consider the following subspace of : W œ ß ß # # # $ " # $ ! " # !
