(Linear combination of vectors) Consider the vectors v1 = (1, 3, 0), v2 = (−1, 1, 1), v3 = (3, 1, −1). Is b = (3, 5, −1) a linear combination of v1 , v2 , v3 ? Q2. (General solution in vector form) Consider 20 2 1 A = 1 1 − 1 0 , 0 1 −2 1 2 b = −1 . −2 (a) Find a special solution x = (x1 , x2 , x3 , x4 ) of Ax = b satisfying x1 = x2 = 0. (b) Solve the homogeneous equation Ax = 0. (c) Solve the equation Ax = b. Q3. (Free variables and rank) Suppose Ax = b is a consistent system of 5 equations in 9 variables. If the rank of A is 3, how many free variables are there in the general solution? Q4. (Null space) Find the null space of A if −3 A= 1 2 6 −2 −4 −1 2 5 1 3 8 −7 −1. −4 Q5. (Span) Consider the vectors v1 = (1, 2, 3, 4), v2 = (2, 3, 4, 1), v3 = (3, 4, 1, 2). (a) Is b = (0, 0, 1, −1) in the span of v1 , v2 , v3 ? (b) Do v1 , v2 , v3 span R4 ? If not, how many more vectors do you need to add in order to span R4 ? Explain. Q6. (Span) Consider the vectors v1 = (0, 1, 2, −1), v2 = (1, 4, −3, 1), v3 = (2, 3, 1, 1). v4 = (−1, 3, 0, 2). Determine whether the vector b = (1, 0, 6, −1) is in the span of v1 , v2 , v3 , v4 . If b is indeed in the span of v1 , v2 , v3 , v4 , how many vectors (among v1 , v2 , v3 , v4 ) can we remove such that b is still in the span of the remaining vectors? Q7.
