Math 136 Assignment 7 Due: Wednesday, Mar 10th 1. Show the each of the following sets form a basis for the subspace that they span, and determine the coordinates of ~x and ~ y with respect to the basis. a) { (1 , 1 , 0 , 1 , 0) , (1 , 0 , 2 , 1 , 1) , (0 , 0 , 1 , 1 , 3) } ; ~x = (2 , - 2 , 5 , - 1 , - 5), ~ y = ( - 1 , - 3 , 3 , - 2 , - 1). b) ±² 1 1 1 0 ³ , ² 0 1 1 1 ³ , ² 2 0 0 - 1 ³´ ; ~x = ² 0 1 1 2 ³ , ~ y = ² - 4 1 1 4 ³ . 2. Find a basis and determine the dimension of the following sets. a) S = span { (1 , 2 , 1) , (2 , 3 , - 2) , ( - 1 , 0 , 7) , (2 , 2 , 1) } . b) S = span { 1 + x + x 2 ,x + x 2 + x 3 , 1 + x 2 + x 3 } . 3. Find a basis for the hyperplane x 1 - x 2 + x 3 + 2 x 4 = 0 in R 4 and then extend the basis to obtain a basis for R 4 . 4. Find a basis for R 3 that includes the vectors (1 , 2 , - 1) and (3 , - 1 , 1). 5. Find a basis for M (2 , 2) that includes the vectors ~v 1 = ² 1 2 1 1 ³ ,~v 2 =

Suppose that B = { ~v 1 ,...,~v k } is an ordered basis for a vector space V , and that C = { ~w 1 ,..., ~w k } is another ordered basis for V and that [ ~x ] B = [ ~x ] C for all ~x ∈ V . Prove that ~v i = ~w i for 1 ≤ i ≤ k . 7. Let V be a finite dimensional vector space and let U be a subspace of V . a) Prove that dim U ≤ dim V . b) Prove that if W is a subspace of V such that W ⊆ U , then dim W ≤ dim U . c) Prove that if W ⊆ U and dim W = dim U , then W = U . 1...
