1 1 1. (15 Points) Let W be the subspace spanned by - 1 2 2 , 2 - 4 - 4 , 1 1 - 3 , - 1 5 1 , - 2 7 3 Find a basis for W and the dimension of W . Solution. Notice that W = Col A , where A = - 1 2 1 - 1 - 2 2 - 4 1 5 7 2 - 4 - 3 1 3 . The reduced row echelon form of A is R = 1 - 2 0 2 3 0 0 1 1 1 0 0 0 0 0 . Since r 1 and r 3 form a basis Col R , we must have that a 1 and a 3 form a basis for Col A . Thus dim W = 2. / 15 1
