A = 1 5 3 3 1 3 The second and third columns are mutliples of the first. And the fifth column is 3 times the third column minus 12 times the first. So the second, third, and fifth columns are redundant. And a basis for the image is just 1 and 3 1 . To get a basis for the kernel we look at A x = 0. This tells us that relationship between entries of x are just x 1 = 5 x 3 3 x 4 +3 x 5 and x 4 = 3 x 5 . So this gives us a basis of 3 elements: x 2 = 1 x 3 = x 5 = x 2 = x 3 = 1 x 5 = x 2 = x 3 = x 5 = 1 1  5 1 3 3 1 3.3.22 Find the reduced rowechelon form of the given matrix A . Then find a basis of the image of A and a basis for the kernel of A . A = 2 4 8 4 5 1 7 9 3 2 4 8 4 5 1 7 9 3 1 2 4 4 5 1 7 9 3 1 2 4 3 15 5 25 1 2 4 1 5 5 25 1 6 1 5 There are leading ones in the first two columns of rref ( A ), So a basis for the image is 2 4 7 and 4 5 9 . We know that x is in the kernel is equiv alent to A x = 0. Thats equivalent to rref ( A ) x = 0. Which is equivalent 1 to x 1 = 6 x 3 and x 2 = 5 x 3 . Which is equivalent to x = x 3 6 5 1 . So 6 5 1 is a basis for the kernel. 3.3.33 A subspace V of R n is called a hyperplane if V is defined by the homoge neous equation c 1 x 1 + c 2 x 2 + . . . + c n x n = 0 where at least one of the coefficients c i is nonzero. What is the dimen sion of a hyperplane in R n ? Justify your answer carefully. What is a hyperplane in R 3 ? What is it in?...
