Unformatted text preview: A ny linear combination of vectors can alw ays be w ritten in the form Ax for a suitable
m atrix A and vector x.
__F_g. T he e quation x = p + tv describes a line through v parallel to p .
__F_h. T he columns of a matrix A are linearly independent if the equation Ax = 0 has the
trivial solution. 2 .
