Mathematics 38 Differential Equations Examination 1 October 5, 2009 No calculators, notes, or books are allowed. Please make sure all electronic devices are turned off and out of sight. Show all work and cross out work you do not want graded! Remember to sign your blue book. With your signature you are pledging that you have neither given nor received assistance on this exam. Good luck! 1. (5 points, answer only, no partial credit) Can the system below be solved by Cramer’s rule? x 1 + x 2 + x 3 = 0 2 x 1 +3 x 2 + x 3 = 0 x 1 3 x 2 + x 3 = 0 Solution: No, the determinant of the matrix of coefficients is zero. 2. (5 points, answer only, no partial credit) Consider the following system of equations: x 1 + x 2 + x 3 = 0 2 x 1 +3 x 2 + x 3 = 0 x 1 3 x 2 + x 3 = 0 Choose one answer: The system has a. a unique solution, b. no solution, c. more than 1 solution. d. None of the above. Solution: c. : d. is clearly impossible, a. is impossible because the previous problem shows that Cramer’s test gives a zero determinant, and b. is not true because x 1 = x 2 = x 3 = 0 is an obvious solution. 3. (5 points, answer only, no partial credit) Choose one answer. det 5 1 sin t t 2 + 3 1 0 4 e t e t 0 0 0 3 ln t 8 0 0 0 2 t 0 0 0 0 1 = a. 5 , b. 2 t , c. 120 , d. 120 sin t 1 4 e t 1 4 ( t 2 + 3) e t . e. None of the above. Solution: c. ; this is easy because the matrix is triangular.

### What students are saying

• 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.
