Unformatted text preview: Homework 5, Due April 1 Adam Gamzon Related reading: sections 3.4, 4.1, and 4.2 from the text 1. Let = 1 2 , 5 6 and let = 2 5 , 5 12 . These are bases of R 2 . (You dont need to prove this.) (a) Let v = 4 4 . Compute [ v ] . Solution: Solve the system represented by the matrix: 1 5   4 2 6  4 . This has rref 1 0  11 0 1   3 , so [ v ] = 11 3 . (b) Determine the change of basis matrix, [1] , that takes coordinates to coordinates. Solution: The change of basis matrix is 2 5 5 12 1 1 5 2 6 = 12 5 5 2 1 5 2 6 = 2 30 1 13 . (c) Use part (b) to find [ v ] . Solution: [ v ] = [1] [ v ] = 2 30 1 13 11 3 = 68 28 2. Consider the vector space P 2 = { ax 2 + bx + c : a,b,c R } . (Remember, the symbol means in.) (a) Show that = { 1 + x 2 , 3 x, 2 x + x 2 } is a basis of P 2 . 1 Solution: Since dim P 2 = 3, it is enough to show that these three vectors are linearly independent. That is, well show that the only real numbersindependent....
