By Stephen Andrilli, David Hecker

Ordinary Linear Algebra develops and explains in cautious aspect the computational concepts and primary theoretical effects imperative to a primary path in linear algebra. This hugely acclaimed textual content specializes in constructing the summary pondering crucial for extra mathematical learn. The authors provide early, extensive consciousness to the abilities essential to make scholars happy with mathematical proofs. The textual content builds a steady and soft transition from computational effects to common thought of summary vector areas. It additionally presents flexbile assurance of functional purposes, exploring a entire diversity of themes.

B) Calculate (in joules) the total work performed by a force of 26 nt acting in the direction of the vector Ϫ2i ϩ 4j ϩ 5k on an object displaced a total of 10 m in the direction of the vector Ϫi ϩ 2j ϩ 2k. (c) Calculate (in joules) the total work performed by a force of 6 nt acting in the direction of the vector 3i Ϫ 2j ϩ 6k on an object displaced a total of 21 m in the direction of the vector Ϫ4i ϩ 4j Ϫ 7k. 5. Why isn’t it true that if x, y, z ∈ Rn , then x · (y · z) ϭ (x · y) · z? 2 The Dot Product 29 6.

In essence, we must show A and B are logically equivalent: the “if A then B” half means that whenever A is true, B must follow; the “if B then A” half means that whenever B is true, A must follow. Therefore, A is true exactly when B is true. 9. Result 4 Let x and y be nonzero vectors in Rn . Then x · y ϭ x is a positive scalar multiple of x. y if and only if y In an “if and only if” proof, it is usually good to begin by stating the two halves of the “if and only if” statement. This gives a clearer picture of what is given and what must be proved in each half.

1 Note: A star ( ) next to an exercise indicates that the answer for that exercise appears in the back of the book, and the full solution appears in the Student Solutions Manual. 1. In each of the following cases, ﬁnd a vector that represents a movement from the ﬁrst (initial) point to the second (terminal) point. Then use this vector to ﬁnd the distance between the given points. (a) (Ϫ4, 3), (5, Ϫ1) (c) (1, Ϫ2, 0, 2, 3), (0, Ϫ3, 2, Ϫ1, Ϫ1) (b) (2, Ϫ1, 4), (Ϫ3, 0, 2) 2. In each of the following cases, draw a directed line segment in space that represents the movement associated with each of the vectors if the initial point is (1, 1, 1).
