Unformatted text preview: |Chapter 1 ISM: Linear Algebra 5?. The second measurement in the problem tells us that 4 sparrows and 1 swallow weigh 58. 59. as much as l sparrow and 5 swallows. We will immediately interpret this as 3 sparrows weighing the same as 4 swallows. The other measurement we use is that all the birds together weigh 1E liang. Setting $1 to he the we' t of a sparrow, and $3 to be the weight of a swallow, we find the augmented matrix 415 representing these two 5 6: 16 equations. 1 a: 3 We reduce this to I 15' , meaning that each sparrow weighs 3 liang, and each . 19 IDLE 19 swallow weighs 1—2; liang. This problem gives us three dilferent combinations of horses that can pull exactly 4|] don up a hill. We condense the statements to fit our needs, saying that, One military horse and one ordinaryr horse can pull 4D dart, two ordinary and one weak horse can pull 4|] den and one military and three weak horses can also pull 4|] den. With this information, we set up our matrix: Ill ; [ll :3 , which reduces to 1 I] 3 ‘ 4e 1 U I] g D 1 I] % [1 fl 1 $ Thus, the military horses can pull 4—? don, the ordinary horses can pull % den and the weak horses can pull 4—,? don each. Here, let W he the depth of the well. 14 +3 —W = [I BE +6" —W = G Then our system heoomes 46' +3 —W = fl . 5D +E —W = II] A +BE —W = [I We transform this system into an augmented matrix, then perform a prolonged reduction 3D ...

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
