 Question 62805: Hi,my name is Natalia. I solved two problems, but I'm not sure that I did it right. I would really appreciate if you can check them. Here are two given problem: Consider a vector space V=Mat 3x3 of all 3x3 matrices Q.: determine the dimension of V,find and verify a basis for it. here is what i've got so far: if the matrix is /a b c/ /d e f/ /g h i/ then the basis for it is /1 0 0/ /0 1 0/ /0 0 1/ /0 0 0/ /0 0 0/ /0 0 0/ /0 0 0/ /0 0 0/ /0 0 0/ /0 0 0/,/0 0 0/,/0 0 0/,/1 0 0/,/0 1 0/,/0 0 1/,/0 0 0/,/0 0 0/,/0 0 0/ /0 0 0/ /0 0 0/ /0 0 0/ /0 0 0/ /0 0 0/ /0 0 0/ /1 0 0/ /0 1 0/ /0 0 1/ So, i have 9 vectors v1, v2,...,v9 that are lineraly independent and span therefore, dimV=9 if the matrix is symmetric dimV=6 and if the matrix is scew-symmetric dimV=9 Am I correct? And the second problem: A have a matrix A= /1 2 3 / /2 5 7 / /3 7 10/ that lookes like A= /1 0 1/ /0 1 1/ /0 0 0/ when row-reduced I need to express a vector x= /2 / /-1/ /7 / as a sum of a vector from the row space and a vector from nullspace For nullspace I got (let's call it v so it will be easier to write an expression then) /-1/ /-1/ /1 / for row space (u and w respectively) /1/ /0/ /0/ /1/ /1/ /1/ that gives me 3-D subspace and the vector expression is: x=2*v + 4*u + 1*w did I solve it correct?
