Homework #1

Problem 1. (Vector space P. 24) Find a basis for the subspace of R5 spanned by the
vectors

Hint: Use echelon form (using Google to find)


Problem 2. (Vector space P. 30) Suppose that we let B be the following basis of R3:

If x is the vector (5, 7,2)T , find the vector of x with respect to B


Problem 3. Write code in Matlab for the solution of second order system using the method
in the lecture (see slide 3-2 to 3-6) and compare the result that obtained using the ode tool
in Matlab.
