Math 136 Assignment 4 Solutions 1. Let A = ± 10 - 1 21 - 2 ² , B = 32 - 1 0 1 0 1 3 3 , C = 2 1 - 2 . Determine the following products or state that they are undeFned. Solution: a) AB = ± 2 - 1 - 4 4 - 1 - 8 ² . b) BA is undeFned since B has 3 columns but A has only 2 rows. c) AC = ± 4 9 ² d) B T C = 4 - 1 - 8 e) C T C = ³ 9 ´ . f) T = 4 10 01 - 2 - 1 2. If AB is a 2 × 4 matrix, then what size are the matrices A and B ? Solution: Since AB is 2 × 4, A must have 2 rows and B must have 4 columns and the number of columns of A must equal the number of rows of B . Hence A is 2 × n and B is n × 4. 1

2 3. Determine which of the following sets are linearly independent. a) S = { (1 , - 2 , 1 , 1) , (2 , - 3 , 3 , 4) , (3 , - 6 , 4 , 5) } . Solution: Consider (0 , 0 , 0 , 0) = c 1 (1 , - 2 , 1 , 1) + c 2 (2 , - 3 , 3 , 4) + c 3 (3 , - 6 , 4 , 5) =( c 1 +2 c 2 +3 c 3 , - 2 c 1 - 3 c 2 - 6 c 3 ,c 1 c 2 +4 c 3 1 c 2 +5 c 3 ) This is the homogeneous system of linear equations with coeFcient matrix A = 1 2 3 - 2 - 3 - 6 1 3 4 1 4 5 .
