         nullspace of A.
  7.7  # 2
  7.8  # 16
PAST FINAL EXAMS:

  Spring 95 # 3
  Spring 96 # 4

MAPLE ASSIGNMENT:
  1. You can again do this part of the assignment as a study group. But each person should attach a copy of the solutions to the assignment they hand in since otherwise the grading becomes too time consuming.
  2. Read about the linear algebra commands in the Maple Manual and look at the Demos on the Web. You should use the commands rowspace,colspace,nullspace,rank,det,inverse .
  3. Do 7.5 # 19,26 ; 7.7 # 13 ; 7.8 # 15


EXTRA CREDIT:

    [5 points] For the potential math majors among you, prove that

    (A(-1))(-1) = A ,

    (AB)(-1) = B(-1)A(-1) and

    (AT)(-1) = (A(-1))T .
