1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Q1: Find the value(s) of h for which the vectors are linearly dependent. Justify your answer. Q2: The linear transformation T is defined by T(x)=Ax. Find a vector x whose image under T is b and determine whether x is unique. 2. Relevant equations Q1: I'm going to write the vectors as linear equations instead, since it should be easier to input: 1(x1) -2(x2) + 3(x3) 5(x1) -9(x2) + h(x3) -3(x1) +6(x2) -9(x3) Q2: I will write Matrix A with vector b in linear equation form as well. 1(x1) -5(x2) -7(x3) = -2 -3(x1) +7(x2) +5(x3) = -2 3. The attempt at a solution I feel like I'm mostly right on these, but I would like some confirmation before I have to turn them in. For Q1: I noticed that row 3 is a scalar multiple of row 1, so I performed the necessary row operation to make it a zero row. Then I replaced row 2 with the sum of row 2 and (-5) row 1. This left me with: 1(x1) - 2(x2) + 3(x3) 0(x1) + 1(x2) +h-15(x3) 0 0 0 I'm a little fuzzy on linear dependency, but I thought that if I could make x3 a free variable, then I'd have it. But then I noticed that x3 is always going to be a free variable, so it seems to me that the solution should be all real numbers. For Q2 - I'll just say the row operations I did, and the solution that I came up with: (3)row 1 + row 2 replace row 2. Scale row 2 by -(1/8) (5)row 2 + row 1 replace row 1. This left me with: (x3) free (x1) = 3 - 3(x3) (x2) = 1 - 2(x3) And my answer is: Since (x3) is free, the solution is not unique. Thanks for any help.
