1. Prove that the set S =
x y z R3  4x  y  5z = 0 is a subspace of R3 . 2. The subspace Span(X) of R3 is a plane for the two choices of X R3 given below. In both cases find the equation of this plane. 1 1 2 2 1 1 b) X = a) X = , 3 . , 3 . 2 1

Let p1 (x) = 2, p2 (x) = 3 + x and p3 (x) = x2 + 1 be polynomial functions in P2 . a) Is Span({p1 , p2 , p3 }) = P2 ? b) Does the set {p2 , p3 } span P2 ? 5. Recall that F is the vector space of functions from R to R, with the usual operations of addition and scalar multiplication of functions. For each of the following subsets of F, write down two functions that belong to the subset, and determine whether or not the subset is a vector subspace of F. a) The set of all constant polynomials. b) The set of polynomials whose coefficients are all nonnegative. c) The set { f : R  R  f (0) = 1 }. d) The set { f : R  R  f (x) = f (x) for all x R }. This is the set of all even functions. 6. Let A =
