Math 102 - Homework 6 (selected problems) David Lipshutz Problem 1. (Strang, 4.4: #14) Use Cramer’s Rule to solve for y . ( a ) ax + by = 1 cx + dy = 0 ( b ) ax + by + cz = 1 dx + ey + fz = 0 gx + hy + iz = 0 Proof. (a) A = " a b c d # b = " 1 0 # B 2 = " a 1 c 0 # y = det B 2 det A = - c ad - bc (b) A = a b c d e f g h i b = 1 0 0 B 2 = a 1 c d 0 f g 0 i y = det B 2 det A = - di - fg det A Problem 2. (Strang, 4.4: #18) Find A - 1 from the cofactor formula C T / det A . Use symmetry in part (b): (a) A = 1 2 0 0 3 0 0 4 1 (b) A = 2 - 1 0 - 1 2 - 1 0 - 1 2 Proof. (a) C = 3 0 0 - 2 1 - 4 0 0 3 A - 1 = C T det A = 1 3 3 - 2 0 0 1 0 0 - 4 3 (b) C = 3 2 1 2 4 2 1 2 3 A - 1 = C T det A = 1 4 3 2 1 2 4 2 1 2 3 1

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.
