M340L EXAM 2A Your name: SPRING, 2010 Dr. Schurle Your UTEID: 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. (10 points) Suppose that v 1 , v 2 , . . . , v p are vectors in a vector space V and that H = Span { v 1 , v 2 , . . . , v p } . Explain in detail how to get a basis for H that consists of vectors from the list v 1 , v 2 , . . . , v p . The vector space V may not be any R q , so you CANNOT use columns or matrices or pivots in your explanation. 2. (10 points) Suppose H is a n × n matrix and the equation H x = c is inconsistent for some c in R n . Does the equation H x = 0 have a nontrivial solution? Justify your answer.

### 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.
