14 February 2007 MATH 133 Mid-term Time: 50 minutes Instructions: This question sheet cannot be taken from the exam room. Answer all questions in the exam booklets. No calculators, cell-phones, or other electronic devices allowed. No books or notes allowed. 1. (5 points) Let P = (1 , 2 , 3) and Q = (7 , 14 , 21). Let M be the midpoint of the line segment PQ and R and S be the points that divide PM ( not PQ ) into three equal parts. Sketch the situation and find M , R and S . 2. (5 points) (a) Define briefly the three types of elementary row operations on a matrix. (b) Using elementary row operations, find the reduced echelon form of the following matrix. Show each step - write a new matrix showing the result of each of your elementary row operations. 0 1 1 4 1 1 2 - 1 3 4 7 1 3. (5 points) (a) Evaluate each of the following matrix products:
