CS205 Midterm 1 Multiple-answer multiple-choice questions [7pts] 1. Which of the following statements about the solution to the linear least- squares problem are true? 0 2. For which of the following reasons do iterative methods typically use the residual to measure convergence? (a) Absolute error is difficult to compute directly. In fact, it is often impossible to do so. (b) Relative error does not indicate how close a given iterate is to the exact solution. This is directly contradictory to the definition of relative error. (c) The residual will be zero if the current iterate is a solution. This follows from the definition of residual. (d) Using the residual is equivalent to using the absolute error. The residual and the absolute error are completely different entities. 1

    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.
