(b) Find the vector af such that f (x) = af x, which we know exists by Problem 5.23, and is unique by Problem 5.24.
SOLUTION Computing the integral,
a + bx + cx2
a 1 dx = a + b/2 + c/3 = b 1/2 . c 1/3
Hence, if we dene 1 af = 1/2 , 1/3 we have f (x)
SOLUTION Since f is a linear transformation from IRn to IR, Theorem 2 says that f (x) = Af x where Af is the 1 n matrix Af = [f (e1 ), f (e2 ), . . . , f (en )] . The single row of this matrix written in vertical form, as is our convention with vectors is

SOLUTION No. By V.I.F. 3, which is the denition of matrixmatrix multiplication
By the denition of the transpose, and what we have just seen, we have: (row k of AB ) = (column k of (AB )t ) = (column k of B t A) = = That is, (row i of AB ) = (row i of B ) which tells us what the rows of AB are. SECOND SOLUTION FOR (a) We can also sta
column of AB is the linear combination of the columns of A with coecients coming from B 1 ,1 B2,1 , the rst column of B . Therefore, B 3 ,1 v2 + v3 = B1,1 v1 + B2,1 v2 + B3,1 v3 , so we can always take B1,1 = 0, B2,1 = 1 and B3,1 = 1. In the same way we n
(c) Write the second row of AB as a linear combination of the rows of B .
SOLUTION (a) By the rst part of Theorem 13, or what is the same, V.I.F. 4, the entry in question is given by the dot product of the second row of A with the thirst column of B . Thu

As you can check, this is the same result that one gets from the formula for inverting 2 2 matrices. Also in exercise 3.30, we found that with q (x) = x3 5x2 + 7x 2, q (B ) = 0. In this case, q (0) = 2, and 1 q (0) q (x) = (x2 5x + 7) . xq (0) 2 Therefore

Looking at the oof diagonal entries we see that either x = 0 or y = 0. But if y = 0, then the diagonal entries would be x2 , which cannot equal 4. Hence it must be that x = 0 and y 2 = 4, or y = 2.
