Chapter 1 Test A (p.87) #3, 6, 8, 10 True or False: if TRUE prove it and if FALSE give an example (#3) An n n matrix A is nonsingular if and only if the reduced row echelon form of A is the identity matrix. Solution: TRUE I -1 If A : I i.e. we can row reduce A to I to get [ A | I ] : | A A has an inverse it's nonsingular. If A is nonsingular i.e. it has an inverse and the inverse is obtained by row reduced echelon form to I A : I . 2 (#6) If A and B are n n matrices, then ( A - B ) = A2 - 2 AB + B 2 Solution: FALSE 2 Because ( A - B ) = A2 - AB - BA + B 2 and in general AB 1 1 , Ex: A = 1 1 2 2 BA 0 1 B= 0 0 1 1 0 0 ( A - B ) = = 1 2 1 1 2 0 A2 - 2 AB + B 2 = 2 0 Clearly, these two matrices are not equal. (#8) The produce of two elementary matrices is an elementary matrix. Solution: FALSE Because the product of two elementary matrices implies that 2 elementary operations have performed violate the definition of an elementary matrix. 1 1 1 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 0 and E = 1 0 E E = 1 0 2 0 2 Ex: Let E1 = 2 1 2 0 1 0 1 0 1 0 3 3 r r r r r r r r (#10) Let A be a 4x3 matrix with a2 = a3 . If b = a1 + a2 + a3 , then the system Ax = b will have infinite many solutions. Solution: TRUE r r r Writing A using column representation we have A = [ a1 a2 a3 ] r r Hence Ax = b becomes x 1 r r r r r r r r r x = [ a1 a2 a3 ] 2 x1a1 + x2 a2 + x3a3 = a1 + a2 + a3 x1 = 1, x2 = 1, x3 = 1 3 x solution. r r r r r b = a1 + 2a3 Since a2 = a3 r r Ax = b becomes x 1 r r r r r r r r r x = [ a1 a2 a3 ] 2 x1a1 + x2 a2 + x3a3 = a1 + 0a2 + 2a3 3 x a solution. This implies that the row echelon form of A must have a row of zero i.e. there is a free variable this system has infinitely many solution. 1 r x = is a 1 1 x1 = 1, x2 = 0, x3 = 2 1 r x = is 0 2 Test B (p.89) # 4, 5, 12 (#4) Let A be a matrix of the form A = where and are fixed scalars not 2 2 both equal to 0. 3 r (a) Explain why the system Ax = must be inconsistent. 1 Solution: r r r In general Ax = b is consistent if b can be written as a linear combination of the columns of A. For the given system the linear combination of columns of A is 1 c1 c2 ( c1 + c2b ) + = 2 2 2 r however, the given vector b can't be expressed as a linear combination of r r Ax = b is inconsistent. 1 2 r r r (b) How can one choose a nonzero vector b so that the system Ax = b will be consistent? Explain. Solution: r 1 r A Just choose b to be a constant multiple of way when we row reduce | b this will 2 r r result in a row of zero the system will have infinite many solutions Ax = b is consistent.

Solution: k = 5 and 1 r 9 (b) Assuming the block multiplication is possible, how would the (2,2) block of the product be determined? C 11 C21 Solution: let C = AB = then C22 = A21 B12 + A22 B22 . C 21 C22 9. Chapter 2 Test A (p.113) #1, 4, 5, 7, 9 True or False: if TRUE prove it and if FALSE give an example (#1) det( AB ) = det( BA) Solution: TRUE det( AB) = det( A) det( B) = det( B) det( A) = det( BA) . (#4) det ( ( AB ) ) = det( A) det( B) . T Solution: TRUE In general det(C T ) = det(C ) T Let C = AB det C = det ( ) ( ( AB ) ) = det(C ) = det( AB) = det( A) det( B) . T (#5) det( A) = det( B) implies A = B . Solution: FALSE 2 - 2 3 0 Ex: A = B = 4 0 0 -6 det( A) = -12 = det( B) but A B . (#7) A triangular matrix is nonsingular if and only if its diagonal entries are all nonzero. Solution: TRUE Suppose A is a nonsingular triangular matrix det( A) 0 And we know that for a triangular matrix the det( A) = product of diagonal entries in order for det( A) 0 all of the diagonal entries must be nonzero. The converse is straight forward just go backward from the proof above. (#9) If A and B are row equivalent matrices, then their determinants are equal. Solution: FALSE 0 2 -2 0 : = Ex: A = -2 B here I switch the two rows of A to get B. 2 0 0 det( A) = 4 and det( B ) = -4 which are not equal!
