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.
