Prove: If the entries in each row of an nxn matrix A add up to zero, then det ( A ) = 0. (Hint: Consider the product AX where X is an nx1 matrix, each of whose entries is one) (20 points) Solution: For A = a 11 a 12 ··· a 1 n . . . a n 1 a n 2 a nn and X = 1 1 . . . 1 AX = a 11 + a 12 + + a 1 n a 21 + a 22 + + a 2 n . . . a n 1 + a n 2 + + a nn = 0 0 . . . 0 (Since the entries in each row of A add up to zero) So X = 1 1 . . . 1 6 = 0 is a solution of AX =0 det ( A )=0 . (Recall: If det ( A ) 6 ,then AX = 0 has only the trivial solution, X =0) . 2. Find the equation of the best line through the points (-1,-2), (0,0), (1,1) and (2,3). (25 points) Solution: Let y = C + Dt be the best line ±tting the given data. Then for A = 1 1 10 11 12 , b = 2 0 1 3 and X = ± C D ² ( A T A ) x = A T b must hold. A T A = ± 1111 1012 ² 1 1 = ± 42 26 ² A T b = ± 1 111 ² 2 0 1 3 = ± 2 9 ² ± ²± C D ² = ± 2 9 ² i
