Math 115 - Lab 9 - Fall 2008. Student number: 1. Let A = - 1 0 1 0 2 0 1 0 2 0 2 0 - 1 0 - 2 0 2 0 4 0 3 0 - 1 0 - 2 . (a) Calculate the rank of A . Solution: A can be reduced to the row-echelon form (REF) R = - 1 0 1 0 2 0 1 0 2 0 0 0 1 0 2 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 rank A = 3. (b) Is A invertible? Why? Solution: Since A is 5 × 5 and rank A 6 = 5, A is not invertible. (c) Determine the basis of row A (the row space of A ) and dim(row A ). Solution: A basis of row A is the non-zero rows of R : a basis of row A = { [ - 1 0 1 0 2 ] , [ 0 1 0 2 0 ] , [ 0 0 1 0 2 ] } . dim(row A ) = rank A = 3. (d) Determine the basis of col A (the column space of A ) and dim(col A ). Solution: A basis of col A consist of the columns in A corresponding to the columns with pivot in R . The pivots are in columns 1 , 2 , 3 of R . columns 1 , 2 , 3 of A forms a basis of col A . a basis of col A = - 1 0 2 0 3 , 0 1 0 2 0 , 1 0 - 1 0 - 1 .

(e) Determine the basis of null A (the null space of A ) and dim(null A ). Solution: To determine a basis of null A , we solve the homogeneous system A~x = ~ 0 which is equivalent to (by row reducing A to R ): - 1 0 1 0 2 0 1 0 2 0 0 0 1 0 2 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 x 1 x 2 x 3 x 4 x 5 = 0 0 0 0 0 x
