Unformatted text preview: AMS 510.01 Fall 2006, Midterm #1 Name: Student ID: Score: /100 ( + /15 bonus) 1. Indicate whether each of the following statements is true or false. n should be taken as any constant positive integer. (2 points each). (a) For any q, r C , if  q  =  r  , then q 2 = r 2 . (b) { (1 , 2 , 3) , (2 , 3 , 0) , (3 , , 0) } is a basis for R 3 . (c) For any A , B , C R n n , if AB = AC = I , then B = C . (d) Every symmetric matrix is invertible. (e) The set of rational numbers, Q = { a b : a, b Z } , form a field ( Z is the set of integers). (f) Every matrix has a welldefined transpose. (g) { (1 + i, 0) , (0 , 1 + i ) } is a basis for C 2 . (h) For any ~u, ~v, ~w R n , if ~u ~v = ~u ~w , then ~v = ~w . (i) If U = { ~u i } is any basis of a vector space U , then ~u i ~u j = 0, i 6 = j . (j) The linear span of any three vectors from R 3 is a threedimensional vector space....
