There are bullets items. every bullet is worth one point We are in the vector space so that the rules (addition, multiplication...) apply mamely 1. v w = w v (commutativity) 2. (v w) + u = v (w + u) (associativity) 3. There is a zero vector such that v 0 = v, v V 4. Each vhas an additive inverse w V such that w v = 0 5. K and v V we have v V 6. , K and v V we have ( + ) v = v v 7. K and v, w V we have (v w) = v w 8. , K and v V we have ( ) v = ( v) 9. 1 v = v 10. 0 v = 0 11. 1 v v = 0 12. 0 = 0 Suppose (x1 , x2 ) + (y1 + y2 ) is dened to be (x1 + y2 ), (x2 + y1 ). With the usual multiplication cx = (cx1 , cx2 ), which of the above condition are not satised? 1

solution: x + y = y + x and x + (y + z) = (x + y) + z and (c1 + c2 )x = c1 x + c2 x The functions f (x) = x2 and g(x) = 5x are vectors in F. This is the vector space of all real functions. The combination3f (x) 4g(x) is the function h(x)=? solution: h(x) = 3f (x) 4g(x) = 3x2 20x Which rule is broken if multiplying f (x) by c gives the fucntion f(cx)? Keep the usual addition f(x)+g(x) solution: If cf (x) is dened to be the usual f (cx) then (c1 + c2 )f = f ((c1 + c2 )x) is dierent from c1 f + c2 f = usual f (c1 x) + f (c2 x). If the sum of the vectors f(x) and g(x) is dened to be the function f(g(x)). Then the zero vector is g(x)=x. Keep the usual scalar multiplication cf(x) and nd two rules that are broken. solution: If (f + g)(x) is the usual 4f (g(x)) then (g + f )x is g(f (x)) which is di?erent. In associativity rule both sides are f (g(h(x))). Rule 11 is broken because there might be no inverse function f 1 (x) such that f (f 1 (x)) = x. If the inverse function exists it will be the vector -f . Show that the norm u |u1 | + ... + |un | = norm that is it satises the requirements that: 1. scaling: u = || u 2. nonnegative: u > 0 and zero if u is zero 3. triangle inequality: u + v u + v solution: First: u |u1 | + ...|un | then u = |u1 | + ... + |un | = |||u1 | + ... + |||un | = || u . Second: u > 0 and zero if u is zero si clearly satised since each |uj | 0. Third: u + v = (u1 + v1 , ..., un + vn ) = |u1 + v1 | + ... + |un + vn |. Now for scalars a and b it is easily seen that |a+b| |a|+|b| so u+v |u1 |+|v1 |+...+|un |+|vn | = u + v . Prove the triangle inequality
n j=1

|uj | is a legitimate

solution: since both sides are non-negative we can also work with the square of both sides and the inequality holds, we will work with, and prove ( u + v )2 ( u + v )2 ( u + v )2 = (u + v) (u + v) = u (u + v) + v (u + v) =uu+uv+vu+vv = u 2 + 2u v + v 2 u 2 + 2|u v| + v 2 cauchy schwarz u 2 + 2 u v + v 2 = ( u + v )2 qED Let S be the set of real-valued polynomial functions of degree n. dened on a a x b. If u = a0 + a1 x + ...an xn and v = b0 + b1 x + ... + bn xn are any two such functions, and is any real scalar, dene the sum = u+v and the scalar multiplication such that (u + v)(x) = (a0 + b0 ) + (a1 + b1 )x... (u)(x) = a0 + a1 x... Further lets dene the multiplication by zero by multiplying every coe. by zero and the -u as putting a negative sign in front of every coecient. SHow that S is a vector space. solution: Since it is a long problem and one has to do the 12 rules. If someone tries the 6 rules from 12 will get one point Find any two orthornormal vectors in 1. span{(1,2),(6,-1)} 2. span{(1,2,4),(2,-1,3)} 3. span{(1,-1,0),(1,2,3)} 4. span{(2,1,0),(0,1,2)} 5. span{(1,1,0,1),(0,2,-1,1)} 6. span{(-2,3,1,1),(0,2,-1,1)} 3

solution: I will do few of them since they are all similar: take the two vectors in bullet number 2: u1 = (1, 2, 4)and u2 = (2, 1, 3) + (1, 2, 4) such that u1 u2 = 12 + 21 = 0 = 12/21 = 4/7 and now u2 = (2, 1, 3) (4/7)(1, 2, 4) = (10/7, 15/7, 5/7) so an orthonor malset in span {(1, 2, 4), (2, 1, 3)} is u1 = (1/ 21)(1, 2, 4), u2 = (1/ 14)(2, 3, 1) where we have normalized them by diving them with their norms. The others are dealt with in a similar manner. You can solve it with dierent manners but the easiest (above) is also acceptable
