1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data V = the set of all symetrical nXn matrices, A=(ajk) such that ajk=akj for all j,k=1,...,n Determine the base and dimensions for V 3. The attempt at a solution I set my matrix up as [a11 a12] [a21 a22] So a21 and a12 are equal to each other? I assume the others are 0. How can I use any axx in a linear combination?
