Math 54 Quiz 2 Mike Hartglass September 17, 2010 1.) (3 points) Let S = { -→ v 1 , -→ v 2 ,..., -→ v n } be a subset of R n . Without using the phrase “linearly independent”, deﬁne what it means for the set S to be linearly dependent . The set S is linearly dependent exactly when there exist real constants x 1 ,...,x n not all zero such that x 1 -→ v 1 + x 2 -→ v 2 + ... + x n -→ v n = -→ 0 . Equivalently, if A is the matrix whose columns are the elements of S then A -→ x = -→ 0 has a nontrivial solution. 2.) (3 points) Let T be the linear transformation of R 2 that rotates points counter- clockwise 90 about the origin then reﬂects these points through the x 2 - axis. A counterclockwise 90 about the origin sends e 1 to e 2 and the reﬂection about the x 2 -axis ﬁxes e 2 . Therefore, T ( e 1 ) = e 2 . The rotation sends e 2 to - e 1 and reﬂection about the x 2 -axis sends - e 1 to e 1 so T ( e 2 ) = e 1 . Therefore the desired matrix is ± 0 1 1 0 ² . 1

As there is a pivot in every row, we know that if A represents the above matrix, then A- x =- b has a solution for all- b R 3 so it follows that T is onto. T is not one-to-one; however. One way to see this is that as A contains more column vectors then rows, the column vectors have to be linearly dependent. Another way to see this is that if we solve A- x =- 0 then from the above row reduction, the variable x 3 must be free so we can have nontrivial solutions to A- x =- 0 . 2...
