(Linear combination of vectors) Consider the vectors v 1 = (1 , 3 , 0), v 2 = (- 1 , 1 , 1), v 3 = (3 , 1 ,- 1). Is b = (3 , 5 ,- 1) a linear combination of v 1 , v 2 , v 3 ? Solution c 1 v 1 + c 2 v 2 + c 3 v 3 = b for some c 1 ,c 2 ,c 3 ⇐⇒ c 1   1 3   + c 2  - 1 1 1   + c 3   3 1- 1   =   3 5- 1   ⇐⇒    c 1- c 2 +3 c 3 = 3 , 3 c 1 + c 2 + c 3 = 5 , c 2- c 3 =- 1 has solutions . Therefore we need to check whether the above system of linear equations has solutions for ( c 1 ,c 2 ,c 3 ) or not. By doing this, we simplify the augmented matrix as follows   1- 1 3 3 3 1 1 5 1- 1- 1  - 3 R 1 + R 2------→   1- 1 3 3 4- 8- 4 1- 1- 1   R 3 + R 1------→- 4 R 3 + R 2   1 2 2- 4 1- 1- 1  - 1 4 R 2-----→ R 2 ↔ R 3   1 2 2 1- 1- 1 1  - 2 R 3 + R 1------→ R 3 + R 2    / £ ¡ ¢ 1 2 / £ ¡ ¢ 1- 1 / £ ¡ ¢ 1    . Since the b-column is nonpivot, the system has solutions for ( c 1 ,c 2 ,c 3 ). In fact, the reduced row echelon form implies that we have b = (2) · v 1 + (- 1) · v 2 + (0) · v 3 = 2 v 1- v 2 . Q2. (General solution in vector form) Consider A =   2 2 1 1 1- 1 1- 2 1   , b =   2- 1- 2   . (a) Find a special solution x = ( x 1 ,x 2 ,x 3 ,x 4 ) of Ax = b satisfying x 1 = x 2 = 0. Solution Since the vector b is identical to the third column of A , we find a special solution x p = ( x 1 ,x 2 ,x 3 ,x 4 ) = (0 , , 1 , 0) satisfying that Ax p = b . (b) Solve the homogeneous equation Ax = . Solution We simplify the coefficient matrix A as follows A =   2 2 1 1 1- 1 1- 2 1  - 2 R 2 + R 1------→ R 1 ↔ R 2   1 1- 1- 2 4 1 1- 2 1  - R 3 + R 1------→ 2 R 3 + R 2   1 1- 1 3 1- 2 1   1 3 R 2-----→ R 2 ↔ R 3   1 1- 1 1- 2 1 1   R 3 + R 1------→- R 3 + R 2    / £ ¡ ¢ 1 1 / £ ¡ ¢ 1- 2 / £ ¡ ¢ 1    . The general solution of Ax = is given by x h =     x 1 x 2 x 3 x 4     =    - x 3 2 x 3 x 3     = x 3    - 1 2 1     , where x 3 is the free variable....
