#### 1.Problem 2.1.6. LetPbe the plane in 3-space with equationx+ 2y+z= 6. What is the

equation of the planeP0through the origin parallel toP? ArePandP0subspaces ofR3? Answer:For any real numberr, the planex+ 2y+z=ris parallel toP, since all such planes have a common normal vectori+2j+k=? ?1 2 1? . In particular, notice that the plane determined by the equation x+ 2y+z= 0 (?) is parallel toPand passes through the origin (since (x,y,z) = (0,0,0) is a solution of the above equation). Hence, this is the equation which determines the planeP0.

### Now, suppose?

?x 1 y 1 z 1? ?x 2 y 2 z 2? ?P0; i.e. the triples (x1,y1,z1) and (x2,y2,z2) both satisfy the equation (?). Then (x1+x2) + 2(y1+y2) + (z1+z2) = (x1+ 2y1+z1) + (x2+ 2y2+z2) = 0 + 0 = 0, so we have that ?x 1 y 1 z 1? ?x 2 y 2 z 2? ?x 1+x2 y 1+y2 z 1+z2? ?P0.

### Also, ifc?R, then

cx

#### 1+ 2(cy1) +cz1=c(x1+ 2y1+z1) =c(0) = 0,

so c? ?x 1 y 1 z 1? ?cx 1 cy 1 cz 1? ?P0.

### On the other hand,?

?6 0 0? and? ?0 3 0? are both inP, but ?6 0 0? ?0 3 0? ?6 3 0? is not inPsince

### Therefore, we see thatPis not a subspace ofR3.1

#### 2.Problem 2.1.12. The functionsf(x) =x2andg(x) = 5xare "vectors" in the vector spaceF

of all real functions. The combination 3f(x)-4g(x) is the functionh(x) =. Which rule is broken if multiplyingf(x) bycgives the functionf(cx)? Answer:The combination 3f(x)-4g(x) is the function h(x) = 3x2-20x. If we tried to define scalar multiplication ascf(x) =f(cx) we would run into problems. Note that f(5x) = (5x)2= 25x2, but f(2x) +f(3x) = (2x)2+ (3x)2= 4x2+ 9x2= 13x2. Hence, this attempted definition of scalar multiplication would not satisfy rule 8 in the defi- nition of a vector space.3.Problem 2.1.18. (a)The intersection of two planes through (0,0,0) is probably abut it could be a . It can"t be the zero vectorZ! Answer:The intersection of two planes through the origin inR3is probably a line, but

it could be a plane (if the two planes coincide).(b)The intersection of a plane through (0,0,0) with a line through (0,0,0) is probably abut it could be a.

Answer:The intersection of a plane through the origin with a line through the origin inR3is probably just the single point (0,0,0), but it could be a whole line (if the line

lies in the plane).(c)IfSandTare subspaces ofR5, their intersectionS∩T(vectors in both subspaces) is a

subspace ofR5.Check the requirements onx+yandcx. Answer:To see thatS∩Tis a subspace, supposex,y?S∩Tand thatc?R. Then, sincexandyare both inSand sinceSis a subspace (meaning that it is closed under addition), we have that x+y?S. Likewise, sincexandyare both elements ofTand sinceTis a subspace, we have that x+y?T. Therefore, sincex+yis in bothSandT, we have that x+y?S∩T. Likewise, sincex?SandSis a subspace (meaning thatSis closed under scalar multiplication), we have thatcx?S; similarly,cx?T. Therefore, cx?S∩T. Since our choices ofx,y, andcwere completely arbitrary, we see thatS∩Tis a subspace ofR5.2

#### 4.Problem 2.1.22. For which right-hand sides (find a condition onb1,b2,b3) are these systems

solvable? (a) ?1 4 2 2 8 4 -1-4-2? ?x 1 x 2 x 3? ?b 1 b 2 b 3? .(b)? ?1 4 2 9 -1-4? ??x1 x 2? ?b 1 b 2 b 3? .(a)Answer:Form the augmented matrix ?1 4 2b1

#### 2 8 4b2

-1-4-2b3? The goal is to use elimination to get this into reduced echelon form. Subtract twice row

?1 4 2b1

### Hence, the given equation is solvable only if

b

#### 2-2b1= 0 andb3+b1= 0.

In other words, the right-hand side of the equation must be a vector of the form ?b 1 2b1 -b1? =b1? ?1 2 -1? for any real numberb1. In other words, the column space of the given matrix is the line containing the vector? ?1 2 -1? .(b)Answer:Form the augmented matrix ?1 4b1 2 9b2 -1-4b3? Then the goal is to get this into reduced echelon form. To do so, subtract twice row 1 from row 2 and add row 1 to row 3, yielding: ?1 4b1

### The given equation is solvable only if

b

#### 3+b1= 0,3

or, equivalently, ifb3=-b1. Hence, the possible right-hand sides are vectors of the form ?b 1 b 2 -b1? =b1? ?1 0

#### 1.Problem 2.1.6. LetPbe the plane in 3-space with equationx+ 2y+z= 6. What is the

equation of the planeP0through the origin parallel toP? ArePandP0subspaces ofR3? Answer:For any real numberr, the planex+ 2y+z=ris parallel toP, since all such planes have a common normal vectori+2j+k=? ?1 2 1? . In particular, notice that the plane determined by the equation x+ 2y+z= 0 (?) is parallel toPand passes through the origin (since (x,y,z) = (0,0,0) is a solution of the above equation). Hence, this is the equation which determines the planeP0.

### Now, suppose?

?x 1 y 1 z 1? ?x 2 y 2 z 2? ?P0; i.e. the triples (x1,y1,z1) and (x2,y2,z2) both satisfy the equation (?). Then (x1+x2) + 2(y1+y2) + (z1+z2) = (x1+ 2y1+z1) + (x2+ 2y2+z2) = 0 + 0 = 0, so we have that ?x 1 y 1 z 1? ?x 2 y 2 z 2? ?x 1+x2 y 1+y2 z 1+z2? ?P0.

### Also, ifc?R, then

cx

#### 1+ 2(cy1) +cz1=c(x1+ 2y1+z1) =c(0) = 0,

so c? ?x 1 y 1 z 1? ?cx 1 cy 1 cz 1? ?P0.

### On the other hand,?

?6 0 0? and? ?0 3 0? are both inP, but ?6 0 0? ?0 3 0? ?6 3 0? is not inPsince

### Therefore, we see thatPis not a subspace ofR3.1

Note that f(5x) = (5x)2= 25x2, but f(2x) +f(3x) = (2x)2+ (3x)2= 4x2+ 9x2= 13x2.

it could be a plane (if the two planes coincide).(b)The intersection of a plane through (0,0,0) with a line through (0,0,0) is probably abut it could be a.

Answer:The intersection of a plane through the origin with a line through the origin inR3is probably just the single point (0,0,0), but it could be a whole line (if the line

lies in the plane).(c)IfSandTare subspaces ofR5, their intersectionS∩T(vectors in both subspaces) is a

subspace ofR5.Check the requirements onx+yandcx. Answer:To see thatS∩Tis a subspace, supposex,y?S∩Tand thatc?R. Then, sincexandyare both inSand sinceSis a subspace (meaning that it is closed under addition), we have that x+y?S. Likewise, sincexandyare both elements ofTand sinceTis a subspace, we have that x+y?T. Therefore, sincex+yis in bothSandT, we have that x+y?S∩T.

In other words, the right-hand side of the equation must be a vector of the form ?b 1 2b1 -b1? =b1? ?1 2 -1? for any real numberb1. In other words, the column space of the given matrix is the line containing the vector? ?1 2 -1? .(b)Answer:Form the augmented matrix ?1 4b1 2 9b2 -1-4b3?
