18.06 Quiz 1 March 1, 2010 Professor Strang Your PRINTED name is: 1. Your recitation number or instructor is 2. 3. 4. 1. Forward elimination changes A x = b to a row reduced R x = d : the complete solution is 4 2 5 ± ± ± ± ± ± x = ± 0 + c 1 ± 1 + c 2 ± 0 ² ² ² 0 0 1 (a) (14 points) What is the 3 by 3 reduced row echelon matrix R and what is d ? (b) (10 points) If the process of elimination subtracted 3 times row 1 from row 2 and then 5 times row 1 from row 3, what matrix connects R and d to the original A and b ? Use this matrix to Fnd A and b .
