MATH 3000 EXAM 1 PRACTICE SHEET Computation (1) Write the general solution to the following system of equations in parametric vector notation (for example ~x = ~a + t ~ b + s~ c , for some vectors ~a, ~ b,~ c ): x 2 + 2 x 3 = 1 x 1 + 4 x 2 + 8 x 2 = 6 3 x 1 + 2 x 2 + 4 x 3 = 8 (2) Give an example of a matrix in echelon form which is not in reduced echelon form. (3) Find a parametric equation for the plane deﬁned by the equation a · x = 12 where a = (2 , 8 , 4). (4) Write down a system of equations in the form of an augmented matrix for ﬁnding the coeﬃcients a,b,c in the equation for a parabola y = ax 2 + bx + c which passes through the points (1 , 1) , (2 , 3) , (5 , 7). (5) Consider the parametric description of a plane P : P = ~x R 3 ± ± ± ± ± ± ~x = t 3 1 - 4 + s 1 2 1 , for some s,t R Find a matrix A such that we have P = { ~x R 3 | ~x = A~ y, for some ~ y R 2 } . (6) Let A = ² 1 2 - 1 0 1 4 ³ Give a parametric description for the solutions to the equation Ax = 0. (7) Let A = ² 1 2 0 2 ³ Find A 2 . Describe the set of vectors ~x which solve the equation A 2 ~x = A~x . 1
