MA 35100 GOINS SAMPLE FINAL EXAM This exam is to be done in 2 hours in one continuous sitting. Collaboration is not allowed, but you may use your own personal notes; the lecture notes posted on the course web site; homework solutions posted on the course web site; and Bretscher’s Linear Algebra with Applications . Write your answers on a separate sheet of paper. Provide all details of your work : either give precise references for or proofs of any statements you claim. Problem 1. Use Gauss-Jordan elimination to solve the linear system ± ± ± ± ± ± x + y + z = 3 2 x + 3 y + 4 z = 11 4 x + 9 y + 16 z = 41 ± ± ± ± ± ± Problem 2. Fix two scalars a and b such that a 2 + b 2 = 1. Consider the identity ² a b b - a ³ = ² a - b b a ³² 1 0 0 - 1 ³ . What is the geometric interpretation of this composition? Draw pictures giving a geometric interpretation of each transformation. How are reflections and rotations in the coordinate
