Practice Midterm 1 1a) Find the inverse of the matrix A = 1 1 1 1 2 3 1 3 6 1b) Use part a) to solve A~x = 1 0 - 1 1c) What is the kernel and the image of the linear transformation given by A? 2) Let T 1 be a linear transformation from the plane to itself with matrix A = " 1 2 1 2 1 2 - 1 2 # a) Determine what type of geometric transformation T 1 is by applying it to the standard vectors and sketching how they are transformed. b) Let T 2 be a linear transformation from the plane to itself with matrix B = ± 2 - 1 1 2 ² Interpret T 2 T 1 geometrically by applying it to the standard vectors (you may use your answer from part a). Is T 2 T 1 = T 1 T 2 ? 1
