*, then w = 1/4 u + 3/4 v is also a solution of Ax = b.*

Just plug it in and use the fact that matrix multiplication is linear.

Plug what? where?

Ax=b, then b=uv ? and uv=w? uv = 1/4u + 3/4v?

Ax=b, then b=uv ? and uv=w? uv = 1/4u + 3/4v?

So "plug" w in for x: Aw= what? Use the fact that w= (1/4)u+ (3/4)v and that A is a

, then w = 1/4 u + 3/4 v is also a solution of Ax = b.= b

Plug what? where?

Ax=b, then b=uv ? and uv=w? uv = 1/4u + 3/4v?

Amy-Lee,

you know that Au = b and Av = b,

so just carry on from there.
