A homogeneous system of equations can be inconsistent. b. If x is a nontrivial solution of Ax 0 , then every entry in x is nonzero. c. T he effect of adding v ector p to a vector x is to move the vector x in a direction parallel to p . d. T he equation Ax b is homogeneous if the zero vector is a solution. 8 . If b 0 , can the solution set of Ax b be a plane through the origin? Explain. 2 9 . Construct a 3 3 nonzero matrix A such that the vector 1 is a solution of Ax 0 . 1 3 2 1 0 . G iven A 6 4 , find one nontrivial solution of Ax 0 by inspection. 12 8 1 1 . a. U se the original v ersion of the Gaussian Elimination A lgorithm to solve .001 1 x1 1 . D o this w ith exact arithmetic. 1 2 x2 0 b. N ow employ the same algorithm on the same problem but simulate a t hree decimal digit floating point environment (thus 2 1000 is computed as 1000 ). c. F inally, use the same algorithm and do the w ork again in a t hree decimal digit floating point environment (thus 1 .002 is computed as - 1) but sw ap the tw o row s so you are 2 x1 0 1 solving . .001 1 x2 1...
