Purdue University MA 353: Linear Algebra II with Applications Homework 1, due Jan. 22, solutions Sec. 1.2 1 (c): False. Proof. Let’s choose x = 0 V . Then for any choice of a and b , clearly ax = bx , even when a 6 = b . ± 18: False. Proof. (VS 1) is not satisfied. For example, let ( a 1 ,a 2 ) = (1 , 0) and ( b 1 ,b 2 ) = (0 , 0). Then ( a 1 ,a 2 ) + ( b 1 ,b 2 ) = (1 , 0) but ( b 1 ,b 2 ) + ( a 1 ,a 2 ) = (2 ,

Unformatted text preview: 0). Proof of Corollary 2 of Theorem 11, Let x V . Suppose y and y are vectors in V such that x + y = 0 and x + y = 0. We need to show y = y . But x + y = 0 and x + y = 0 imply x + y = x + y , which implies y + x = y + x . Then by Theorem 1.1, we have y = y . 1...
