P1: Let vector a = [1,2,3], b = [1,0,4], c = [2,1,0], Calculate the inner and cross
product of a,b?
(2). What is a(bXc)?
(3). Prove that a b a b a b .

(4). Find the base for row and column space? Evaluate the rank of A and AT?

## (4). Through Gaussian elimination:

T

1 3 5 6 1 3 5 6

2 6 9 12 0 0 1 0 , the row base: 3 , 0

3 9 15 18 0 0 0 0

6 0

1 3 5 6 1 0 0 0 1 0 0 0
2 6 9 12 => 2 0 1 0 => 2 1 0 0 , the column base:

3 9 15 18 3 0 0 0 3 0 0 0

1 0
2 , 1

3 0

So rank(A)=rank(AT)=2.

P2: Are the following are vector spaces? Explain why. If they are vector spaces,
find the basis and dimension.

a. All vectors x in R3 such that x 2 0

3

T

## b. All vectors (x,y)T in R2 such that x+y=2.

c. All vectors x in R3 which are in column space AND null space of the matrix:

1 2 1

1 2 1
1 2 1

Solution:
a. We define the addition and scalar multiplication:

x1 x2 x11 x21

x12 x22

## x13 x23 , kx1 kx11

T

kx13

For:

## So its a vector space.

## For x1 x2 y1 y2 4 2 , we know its not a vector space.

c. The definition of addition and scalar multiplication is the same with that of (a).
Vector (x,y,z) in column space AND null space should fulfill:

P3: (a). In a 2-D x-y plane, find the matrix (call it R) that represents a reflection
about the line defined by y=x.
(b). Find the inverse of matrix R.
(c). Find the matrix (call it T) that represents a rotation by 90 in the
counter-clockwise direction in the same plane.
(d). Find the matrix that represents first a reflection about the line y=x, and then
followed by a rotation of 90 in the counter-clockwise direction in the same plane?
Whats the operation corresponding to this matrix?
Solution: (a).

r11 r12
r11 r12 1 r11 r11 r12 0 r12
, So:

,

r21 r22
r21 r22 0 r21 r21 r22 1 r22

Suppose R

From Figure 1,

0 1

1 0

So (1,0) and (0,1) both are reflection of each other about y=x. So R

(b).

. Just like method in (a), we consider the rotation of (1,0)
t21 t22

(c). Suppose T
and (0,1).

t21 t22 0 t21 1

So

## t11 t12 0 t12 1

(d). Follow the method of (a) and (c), we suppose the matrix is D

## d11 d12 1 d11 1 d11 d12 0 d12 0
