5. REF vs. RREF
6. Matrix Inversion, Theorem 2.6
1. Is the given transformation linear? Why or why not?
(a) Is T invertible? Why or why not? --- Yes, it\'s 2 × 2 and
column is not a multiple of the other .
(b) Are the columns of T linearly independent? Why or why not? ---
Yes, because it\'s invertible
(c) What is the rank of T? --- 2
(d) What is the nullity of T? --- 0
3. Let Write b as a
nation of the vectors in S.
4. Give the general solution in vector form to the equation Ax = b, where
(a) Is A one-to-one? --- no
(b) Is A onto? --- no
(c) What is rank(A)? --- 2
(d) What is nullity(A)? --- 1
(e) Are the columns of A linearly independent? --- no
5. De termine if the following vectors are linearly independent:
(a) Is A invertible? --- No - it has only two pivots (see
(b) What is rank(A)? --- 2
(c) What is nullity(A)? --- 1
6. Let in the span of
Yes, via row row reduction of the corresponding augmented matrix.
(a) What is the span of S? --- The row reduction above gives
pivots, thus the span is R^3
(b) If is A invertible? --- Yes, every column is
a pivot column.
(c) What are rank(A) and nullity(A)? --- rank(A) = 3, nullity(A) = 0
7. Find the inverse of
Use A-1 to solve the system of equations
x1 + 2x2 + 3x3 = 1
2x1 + 3x2 + 4x3 = 2
3x1 + 4x2 + 6x3 = 3
If Ax = b, then x = A-1b, so
Give a matrix re presenting T .
(a) Are the columns of T linearly independent? --- Yes, the
2 × 2 and one column is not a multiple of the other.
(b) What are the rank and nullity of T? --- 2,0
(c) Is T invertible? Why or why not? --- Yes, the columns are linearly
9. Show that the inverse of
Use the row reduction method
