During the test, you may not use notes, books, calculators. Read each question carefully, and show all your work. There are nine problems on the pages numbered from 1 to 9, with the total of 100 points. Point values are given in parentheses. You have 2 hours (until 9PM) to answer all the questions. In the exam all vectors are columns, but sometimes we use transpose to write them horizon- tally. Thus v = v 1 v 2 . . . v k = [ v 1 , v 2 , . . . , v k ] T . Similarly v T is a row [ v 1 , v 2 , . . . , v k ]. The dot product of two vectors is denoted as v w . Problem 1. (10 pts.) Mark as TRUE/FALSE the following statements. If a statement is false, give a simple example. If a statement is true, give a justification. a) The null space of the matrix 0 0 0 0 0 0 is R 2 TRUE FALSE The null space N ( A ) is a subset of R n , where n is the number of columns of A . b) The cross product of two vectors belongs to the plane spanned by them. TRUE FALSE The cross product is perpendicular to the vectors, not in the span. c) Let A be a 2 4 matrix. Then dim N ( A ) 2. TRUE FALSE dim N ( A ) is the number of columns without pivot. There is at most one pivot in each row, and there are only 2 rows, so at least 2 of the four columns will be without pivot. d) For any k n matrix A , dim N ( A ) + dim C ( A ) = k . TRUE FALSE Sorry, it is n , the number of columns, not k ....
