Unformatted text preview: 115A HW SELECTED SOLUTIONS Sec 1.2. 1. True/False (b). F (Corollary 1) (c). F ( x =0) (d). F ( a =0) (h). F (deg( f + g ) n ) (k). T (Example 3) 7. Let S = { , 1 } and F = R . In F ( S, R ), show that f = g and f + g = h , where f ( t ) = 2 t + 1, g ( t ) = 1 + 4 t 2 t 2 , and h ( t ) = 5 t + 1. Recall that two functions (vectors) f and g in the vector space F ( S, R ) are equal precisely when f ( s ) = g ( s ) for all s S . Hence we need only check that f (0) = g (0), f (1) = g (1), f (0) + g (0) = h (0), and f (1) + g (1) = h (1). 18. Let V = { ( a 1 , a 2 ): a 1 , a 2 R } . For ( a 1 , a 2 ) , ( b 1 , b 2 ) V and c R , define (0.0.1) ( a 1 , a 2 ) + ( b 1 , b 2 ) = ( a 1 + 2 b 1 , a 2 + 3 b 2 ) , c ( a 1 , a 2 ) = ( ca 1 , ca 2 ) . We must check the vector space properties VS 1VS 8. 1 Since scalar multiplication is defined coordinatewise, it follows at once that VS 5 and VS 6 hold. However, VS 1 and VS 2 fail. Indeed, VS 1 fails since ( a 1 , a 2 ) + ( b 1 , b 2 ) = ( a 1 + 2 b 1 , a 2 + 2 b 2 ) ( b 1 , b 2 ) + ( a 1 , a 2 ) = ( b 1 + 2 a 1 , b 2 + 2 a 2 ) , and these two quantities are not equal in general. Property VS 2 does not hold since (( a 1 , a 2 ) + ( b 1 , b 2 )) + ( c 1 , c 2 ) = ( a 1 + 2 b 1 , a 2 + 3 b 2 ) + ( c 1 , c 2 ) = ( a 1 + 2 b 1 + 2 c 1 , a 2 + 3 b 2 + 3 c 2 ) but ( a 1 , a 2 ) + ( b 1 , b 2 ) + ( c 1 , c 2 )) = ( a 1 , a 2 ) + ( b 1 + 2 c 1 , b 2 + 3 c 2 ) = ( a 1 + 2 b 1 + 4 c 1 , a 2 + 3...
