(a) Apply the type II and type III elementary row operations (i.e. no interchange of rows) to reduce A = 2 - 6 - 2 - 1 3 3 - 1 3 7 into row echelon form. (b) Hence find a lower triangular matrix L and an upper triangular matrix U such that A = LU . [See p.67 of textbook for the definition of upper and lower triangular matrices.] 2. Let A = ( a ij ) n × n be a square matrix of order n . The trace of A , denoted by tr( A ), is defined as tr( A ) = n X i =1 a ii = a 11 + a 22 + · · · + a nn .

• 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.
