Unformatted text preview: Solutions to problems from section 1.8 4. With T defined by T ( x ) = A x , find a vector x whose image under T id b and determine whether x is unique. A = 1 3 2 1 4 3 5 9 , b = 6 7 9 Solution: We are trying to determine existence and uniqueness of a solution to the equation A x = b . Wo look at the corresponding augmented matrix: 1 3 2 6 1 4 7 3 5 9 9 NR 3 = R 3 3 R 1 1 3 2 6 1 4 7 4 15 27 NR 3 = R 3 4 R 2 1 3 2 6 1 4 7 1 1 Notice that the corresponding linear system is consistent but has no free variables. Thus there exists a vector x whose image under T id b and that x is unique. 10. Find all x in R 4 that are mapped to the zero vector by the matrix transformation x mapsto A x where A = 1 3 9 2 1 0 3 4 0 1 2 3 2 3 0 5 Solution: We are looking for the solution set of the equation A x = . Lets reduce the corresponding augmented matrix: 1 3 9 2 0 1 0 3 4 0 0 1 2 3 0 2 3 0 5 0 NR 2 = R 2 R 1 NR 4 = R 4 +2 R 1 1 3 9 2 0 3 6 6 0 1 2 3 0 9 18 9 0 R 2 R 3 1 3 9 2 0 1 2 3 0 3 6 6 0 9 18 9 0 NR 3 = R 3 +3 R 2 NR 4 = R 4 9 R 2 1 3 9 2 0 0 1 2 3 0 0 0 0 3 0 0 0 0 18 0 NR 3 = 1 3 R 3 1 3 9 2 0 0 1 2 3 0 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 0 18 0 NR 1 = R 1...
