(c) Verify Theorem 3.12; that is, show that A (adj A ) = (adj A ) A = det( A ) I 3 . Solution: (a) First we compute the cofactors of A . We have A 11 = (- 1) 1+1 2 0- 2 1 = 2 A 21 = (- 1) 2+1 1 3- 2 1 =- 7 A 31 = (- 1) 3+1 1 3 2 0 =- 6 A 12 = (- 1) 1+2- 1 0 3 1 = 1 A 22 = (- 1) 2+2 2 3 3 1 =- 7 A 32 = (- 1) 3+2 2 3- 1 0 =- 3 A 13 = (- 1) 1+3- 1 2 3- 2 =- 4 A 23 = (- 1) 2+3 2 1 3- 2 = 7 A 33 = (- 1) 3+3 2 1- 1 2 = 5 Then the adjoint of A is the matrix adj A = A 11 A 21 A 31 A 12 A 22 A 32 A 13 A 23 A 33 = 2- 7- 6 1- 7- 3- 4 7 5 (b) We can compute the determinant by expanding along the first row of A : det( A ) = a 11 A 11 + a 12 A 12 + a 13 A 13 = (2)(2) + (1)(1) + (3)(- 4) =- 7 (c) We have the matrix products A (adj A ) = 2 1 3- 1 2 0 3- 2 1 2- 7- 6 1- 7- 3- 4 7 5 = - 7- 7- 7 = det( A ) I 3 . (adj A ) A = 2- 7- 6 1- 7- 3- 4 7 5 2 1 3- 1 2 0 3- 2 1 = - 7- 7- 7 = det( A ) I 3 . #2. Page 169; Exercise 4. Find the inverse of the matrix in Exercise 2 by the method given in Corollary 3.4. 1 2 MA 265 HOMEWORK ASSIGNMENT #6 SOLUTIONS Solution: The inverse of the matrix is A- 1 = 1 det( A ) (adj A ) = - 2 7 1 6 7- 1 7 1 3 7 4 7- 1- 5 7 #3. Page 172; Exercise 1. If possible, solve the following linear systems by Cramer’s rule: 2 x 1 + 4 x 2 + 6 x 3 = 2 x 1 + 2 x 3 = 2 x 1 + 3 x 2- x 3 =- 5 Solution: Denote the coefficient matrix of the system by A = 2 4 6 1 0 2 2 3- 1 = ⇒ | A | = (2) 2 3- 1- (4) 1 2 2- 1 + (6) 1 0 2 3 = 26 . Then we have the values x 1 = 2 4 6 0 0 2- 5 3- 1 | A | = (2) 2 3- 1- (4) 2- 5- 1 + (6) 0 0- 5 3 26 =- 52 26 =- 2 x 2 = 2 2 6 1 2 2- 5- 1 | A | = (2) 2- 5- 1- (2) 1 2 2- 1 + (6) 1 2- 5 26 = 26 = 0 x 3 = 2 4 2 1 0 2 3- 5 | A | = (2) 3- 5- (4) 1 2- 5 + (2) 1 0 2 3 26 = 26 26 = 1 Hence the solution is x 1 =- 2, x 2 = 0, and x 3 = 1. #4. Page 172; Exercise 3. Solve the following linear system for x 3 , by Cramer’s rule: 2 x 1 + x 2 + x 3 = 6 3 x 1 + 2 x 2- 2 x 3 =- 2 x 1 + x 2 + 2 x 3 =- 4 Solution: Denote the coefficient matrix of the system by A = 2 1 1 3 2- 2 1 1 2 = ⇒ | A | = (2) 2- 2 1 2- (1) 3- 2 1 2 + (1) 3 2 1 1 = 5 . MA 265 HOMEWORK ASSIGNMENT #6 SOLUTIONS 3 Then we have the value x 3 = 2 1 6 3 2- 2 1 1- 4 | A | = (2) 2- 2 1- 4- (1) 3- 2 1- 4 + (6) 3 2 1 1 5 = 4 5 #5. Page 187; Exercise 2. Determine the head of the vector- 2 5 whose tail is (- 3 , 2). Make a sketch. Solution: Say that the tail is P (- 3 , 2) and the head is Q ( x,y ). Then we have the directed line segment--→ PQ = x- (- 3) y- 2 =- 2 5 ....
