M340L EXAM 1B SPRING, 2010 Dr. Schurle Show all your work on these pages. Be organized and neat. Your work should be your own; there should be no talking, reading notes, checking laptops, using cellphones, . . . . 1. (14 points) Describe in detail the method used to determine whether p vectors in R q are linearly independent and explain why the method works.

YOUR SCORE: /100 2. (14 points) Suppose A and D are matrices, not necessarily square, such that AD = I p . Explain why the equation A x = b has a solution for every b in R p and then explain what this says about the columns of A . 3. (14 points) Find the inverse of D = " 2 1 3 2 # and use it to solve X - " 1 2 3 4 #! D = " 2 2 1 3 # for X .
4. (14 points) Suppose the linear transformation T from R 3 to R 2 maps x = x 1 x 2 x 3 into x 1 " 3 9 # + x 2 " 1 4 # + x 3 " 2 2 # . (a) Calculate and simplify T 1 2 3 . (b) Find a matrix A such that T ( x ) = A x . (c) Use parametric vector form to describe the collection of all
