### Describe geometrically

Linear Algebra:Â I need detailed worked out solutions to the following attached problems, so I can compare whether I'm doing things right (my prof will provide later on, after I turn it in, but that does me no good after the fact). Basically provide a solution guide. If I like your work, I'll likely hire you againÂ for future solutions in this material, in the next coming 10 weeks (10 weekly assignments). Thanks.

Recall: The span of vectors v and w is the set of all possible linear combinations c v +d w
as c and d range over all real numbers. More generally, the span of a set of vectors v1 , v2 ..., vn
is the set of all possible linear combinations c1 v1 + c2 v2 + Â· Â· Â· cn vn .

0 (geometrically) is the span of u and v? Do
If so, find c and d. (geometrically) is the span of u and v? Do
If so, find c and d. From Strang Problem Set 1.1: problems 13, 14.
6. Consider the three vectors in part (c) of problem 1. Find a single vector v such that
its inner product with every one of the vectors in 1(c) vanishes. What is the dot product
of this v with an arbitrary linear combination of the vectors in 1(c)? What is the sum of
components of an arbitrary linear combination of the vectors in 1(c)?
1 7. Consider the three vectors from problem 3. Find u Â· v, u Â· (v âˆ’ w), v Â· w, u Â· w. Check
that u Â· (v âˆ’ w) = u Â· v âˆ’ u Â· w.
Recall: The dot product is a bilinear map from two copies of Rn to R. This means that
it takes two vectors and spits out a real number, while respecting the additive and scalarmultiplicative properties of both vectors simultaneously. Algebraically, this means that for
any u, v, w we have
(u+v)Â·w = uÂ·w+vÂ·w and uÂ·(v+w) = uÂ·v+uÂ·w and (c u)Â·v = c (uÂ·v) = uÂ·(c v).
In addition, the dot product is symmetric. This means that for any u, v
u Â· v = v Â· u. 8. Take the two vectors u and v from problem 4. Check that (2 u âˆ’ v) Â· v = 2(u Â· v) âˆ’ v Â· v
and that (u âˆ’ v) Â· (u + v) = ||u||2 âˆ’ ||v||2 .
9. What is (c u + d v) Â· (e w), expanded out? What is (c u + d v) Â· (e w + f t), expanded out? 2
