MATH1111/2010-11/Tutorial I Solution 1 Tutorial I Suggested Solution 1. Consider the system 8 < : x 1 ± x 2 + x 3 ± x 4 + x 5 = 1 x 2 ± x 4 ± x 5 = ± 1 x 3 ± 2 x 4 + 3 x 5 = 2 : Determine with explanation whether the following is true. (a) There are two free variables. (b) The free variables must be x 4 and x 5 . Ans . (a) The augmented matrix is already in row echelon form, 0 @ 1 ± 1 1 ± 1 1 0 1 0 ± 1 ± 1 0 0 1 ± 2 3 1 ± 1 2 1 A : Hence there are 2 free variables. In fact, take x 4 = ± and x 5 = ² , then x 3 = 2+2 ± ± 3 ²; x 2 = ± 1+ ± + ²; x 1 = 1 + ( ± 1 + ± + ² ) ± (2 + 2 ± ± 3 ² ) + ± ± ² = 3 ² ± 2 : The solution set is 8 > > > > < > > > > : 0 B B B B @ 3 ² ± 2 ± + ² ± 1 2 ± ± 3 ² + 2 ± ² 1 C C C C A : ±;² 2 R 9 > > > > = > > > > ; = 8 > > > > < > > > > : ± 0 B B B B @ 0 1 2 1 0 1 C C C C A + ² 0 B B B B @ 3 1 ± 3 0 1 1 C C C C A + 0 B B B B @ ± 2 ± 1 2 0 0 1 C C C C A : ±;² 2 R 9 > > > > = > > > > ; : (b) No. We rewrite the system into 8 < : x 1 ± x 2 ± x 4 + x 3 + x 5 = 1 x 2 ± x 4 ± x 5 = ± 1 ± 2 x 4 + x 3 + 3 x 5 = 2 ; whose augmented matrix is reduced to 0 @ 1 ± 1 ± 1 1 1 0 1 ± 1 0 ± 1 0 0 1 ± 1 2 ± 3 2 1 ± 1 ± 1 1 A : Now, x 3 and x 5 are free variables.
