Assignment 1 Applied Linear Algebra Math 232(Fall 2008) Additional question: For which values of h does the system of equations below have more than one solution? x 1 + x 2 + x 3 = 0 x 1 + 2 x 2 + hx 3 = 0 x 1 + 4 x 2 + h 2 x 3 = 0 . A1. We create the augmented matrix 1 1 1 0 1 2 h 0 1 4 h 2 0 . We row reduce, first subracting row one from row two and then subtracting row one from row three, to obtain 1 1 1 0 0 1 h - 1 0 0 3 h 2 -

Unformatted text preview: 1 0 . Next we subtract three times row two from row three to obtain 1 1 1 0 1 h-1 0 0 h 2-3 h + 2 0 . Observe that x 1 and x 2 are not free variables since there are pivots in the rst and second column. The variable x 3 is free if and only if h 2-3 h + 2 = 0. Factoring, we see if h = 2 or h = 1 then we have a free variable and hence the system has more than one solution in these cases. 1...
