**Assignments: ** Assignments are taken from the textbook for
the course, "Contemporary
Linear Algebra" by Howard Anton and Robert C. Busby.

Marked assignments will be handed out in class on the following Monday, except the last one.

Each weekly assignment will be graded out of 40 points.All five assignments will be considered.

Solutions for homework of the week will be posted at 12:00 p.m.on Thursday of the week.

Note that these questions are even-numbered - the answer is not at the back of the book.

But in most cases the question before, or after, will be very similar. You will probably want to do this corresponding

odd-numbered problem and check your answer in the back of the book, just to make sure you've got the right technique.

Assignment 5 |

Note1: the solution for 16b in Section 1.1 is wrong. The correct answer is t=0, since zero vector is parallel to every vector.

The solution for 36 in Section 1.3 is wrong. The correct one is 2x+4y+8z=-13.

Note 2: the solution for 36 in Section 4.2 is missing. The answer is; det(A^-1BA)=det(A^-1)det(B)det(A)=det(A^-1)det(A)det(B)=det(B)

since det(A^-1)=1/det(A).
