Instead please write your name, your student ID, your TA’s name, your section time. “yellow,” and all your answers in your blue books. IMPORTANT: Problems 1—16 are multiple choice or short answer questions; please write your answers to those and nothing else on the first page of your first blue book; for these problems you can get full credit for the answer alone. But to get partial credit for wrong answers or to get credit on problems 177 20, you must show your work on later pages in your blue book, Clearly labelled by problem number. Total: 20 problems, 200 pts., 2 hours and 50 minutes. Math 49 students doing linear algebra only: do only problems 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 9, 10, 11, 17. (You have 2 hours.) Math 49 students doing DE’s only: do only problems 5, T, 12, l3, 14, 15, 16, 18, 19, 20. (You have 2 hours.) Math 49 students doing PDEls/Fourier series only: do only problems 12, 18, 20.

In problems 5 to 8, write “TRUE” (not just T) if the statement is always true, “FALSE” if it is sometimes false. No explanation required. (5) (6 pts.) If A is a square matrix, then every solution x(t) to the system x’ : Ax is a linear combination of the columns of em. (6) (6 pts.) If A is a square matrix, and the characteristic polynomial of A is (.1: W 6)2(z i 7)3, then there exist two linearly independent vectors v1 and v2 such that Avl : 6v1 and Av; = 5V2. (7) (6 pts.)

If A and .B are symmetric 2 x 2 matrices, then AB is symmetric. In problems 9—13, write “YES” if the given set is a vector space under the usual addition and scalar multiplication, and “NO” otherwise.
