P2 are linearly independent. Do NOT use the Wronskian. NOTE: You must show all

your calculations, and you MUST show each step of how the resulting matrix was set up.

If you do this question only by inspection (i.e. trial and error or guessing), or do not show

all your work, you will NOT receive marks.

3. (6 marks; 3 marks each) Answer each question in the space provided.

a) Consider the set F(-,) of all real-valued functions that are defined on (-,).

Suppose that scalar multiplication for this set is defined as usual, but that addition

is defined instead by ( f g )( x ) f ( x ) 2 g ( x ) . Prove that the following

vector space property does NOT hold: (f+(g+h))(x)= ((f+g)+h)(x)

b 0 b

b) Suppose that the set W consists of all 3 3 matrices of the form 0 b 0 where

b 0 b

b may be any scalar. Suppose that scalar multiplication and addition for this set

is defined as usual. Determine whether this set is closed under scalar

multiplication (i.e. If u is an object in W and k any scalar, then ku is in W) and

prove your answer.
