Unformatted text preview: Math 136 Assignment 1 Solutions 1. Compute each of the following. a) (1 , 3 , 4) + (- 1 , 1 , 2) Solution: (1 , 3 , 4) + (- 1 , 1 , 2) = (0 , 4 , 6). b) 3(- 1 , 1 ,- 2)- 2(2 , , 3). Solution: 3(- 1 , 1 ,- 2)- 2(2 , , 3) = (- 3 , 3 ,- 6) + (- 4 , ,- 6) = (- 7 , 3 ,- 12). 2. Determine the distance between P (2 , 1 , 1) and Q (1 ,- 1 , 1). Solution: The distance is k (1 ,- 1 , 1)- (2 , 1 , 1) k = k (- 1 ,- 2 , 0) k = p (- 1) 2 + (- 2) 2 + 0 2 = 5. 3. Determine which of the following pairs of vectors is orthogonal. a) (2 , 1 , 1), (- 2 , 1 , 3). Solution: We have (2 , 1 , 1) (- 2 , 1 , 3) =- 4 + 1 + 3 = 0 so they are orthogonal. b) (- 1 , 3 , 6), (3 ,- 1 , 0). Solution: We have (- 1 , 3 , 6) (3 ,- 1 , 0) =- 3- 3 + 0 =- 6 so they are not orthogonal. 4. Find an equation for the plane through P (3 ,- 2 , 1) and parallel to x 1- x 2 + 2 x 3 = 4. Solution: Since the plane is parallel to x 1- x 2 + 2 x 3 = 4 it must have normal vector ~n = (1 ,- 1 , 2). Thus the equation of the plane is x 1- x 2 + 2 x 3 = 1(3)- 1(- 2) + 2(1) = 7 . 5. For each of the following sets: i) Determine if the set is linearly dependent or linearly independent. Justify....
