Homework Help: Calculating the normalized form of a matrix

  1. Apr 9, 2012 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    Calculate the normalized form of the matrix

    1-1020
    2-1011
    4 0101

    2. Relevant equations



    3. The attempt at a solution
    Im wondering if the normalized form of this matrix is

    100nn
    010nn
    001nn

    where n are the numbers resulting from the normalization of the matrix.

    Is this correct?

    Thanks a lot in advance.

    Why are the - signs in rows 1 and 2?
    Assuming that you want to get to reduced row-echelon form, yes, the above is correct.
