Q4. (Existence and uniqueness) Given a −8 a A = 3 2 2 −1 1 , 1 and x x = y . z Under what condition on a (here a is a real number) so that the homogeneous system Ax = 0 has solutions other than the trivial solution x = 0? Q5. (Pivots and rank) Find an example of 3 × 3 invertible matrices A and B, such that rank (A + B) = 1 (so that A + B is not invertible). Find an example of 3 × 3 non-invertible matrices A and B, such that A + B is invertible. 1 Q6. (Pivots and rank) Given the matrix A = 2 1 of A is 2. λ −1 10 −1 λ −6 2 5.
