MAS 4105 Test 3 (12 pts) 1. In the following, let T be a linear operator on a vector space V and let β be a basis for V . Also let A,B,C,D,E M n × n . a. If matrix A is invertible and matrix B is not, what is the maximum possible rank of AB ? b. Let U be a linear operator on R 3 deﬁned by U a b c = a + b + c b + c c then the vector - 3 0 0 is an eigenvector for U . What is the eigenvalue associated with the eigenvector? c. The function f ( t ) = det([ T ] β - tI) is called the of T . d. If C = - 1 2 1 0 - 3 2 4 - 2 - 2 , write the terms resulting from the calculation of the determinant by performing a cofactor expansion down the third column (do not evaluate!). e. The determinant of matrix C is equal to -2. If matrix C is obtained from matrix D by interchanging two rows of D and if matrix D is obtained from matrix E by multiplying one row of matrix E by -4, what is the determinant of matrix E ? f. The system Ax = b is consistent if rank( A | b ) is equal to ?
