Unformatted text preview: c2 D c3 D 0. Only this combination of v1 ; v2 ; v3 gives 0. 9 (a) The four vectors in R3 are the columns of a 3 by 4 matrix A. There is a nonzero solution to Ax D 0 because there is at least one free variable (b) Two vectors are
dependent if Œ v 1 v2 has rank 0 or 1. (OK to say “they are on the same line” or “one is
a multiple of the other” but not “v2 is a multiple of v1 ” —since v1 might be 0.) (c) A
nontrivial combination of v1 and 0 gives 0: 0v1 C 3.0; 0; 0/ D 0.
10 The plane is the nullspace of A D Œ 1 2 3 1 . Three free variables give three
solutions .x; y; z; t / D .2; 1 0 0/ and .3; 0; 1; 0/ and .1; 0; 0; 1/. Combinations
of those special solutions give more solutions (all solutions). 11 (a) Line in R3 (b) Plane in R3 (c) All of R3 (d) All of R3 . 12 b is in the column space when Ax D b has a solution; c is in the row space when AT y D c has a solution. False. The zero vector is always in the row space. 13 The column space and row space of A and U all have the same dimension = 2. The row spaces of A and U are the same, because the rows of U are combinations of the rows
of A (and vice versa!).

21 (a) The only solution to Ax D 0 is x D 0 because the columns are independent (b) Ax D b is solvable because the columns span R5 . Key point: A basis gives
exactly one solution for every b. 22 (a) True (b) False because the basis vectors for R6 might not be in S. 23 Columns 1 and 2 are bases for the (different) column spaces of A and U ; rows 1 and 2 are bases for the (equal) row spaces of A and U ; .1; 1; 1/ is a basis for the (equal)
