Hello,

in exercise 11, I get b is not and w is, but the answer key says b is and w is not...? I don't understand...have I misunderstood or is the answer key wrong?

Regrds,

I don't know who/what facit is, but he/she/it is correct. Perhaps if you post your solution, we can discuss it.

Petrus, I suggest if you are going to upload images that you use some sort of image editing software to rotate the image so that it is the right side up for ease of reading.

Somehow he is referring by facit to the textbook.

What do you mean by rotate? The picture seem nice to me

Yes, the facit refers to the answer key (I have edited the post), and I have rotated, cropped, re-sized and uploaded the new image.

edit: Petrus, on my computer, the image needed to be rotated clockwise 90 degrees.

after row reduce we got 1 0 -1|3
----------------------------0 1 2|-1
that means we got infinity soloution, if we set $$\displaystyle x_3=t$$ we got $$\displaystyle x_2=-1-2t$$ and $$\displaystyle x_1= 3+t$$ it indeed got soloution so it is in col(A)
Right?

Strange and thanks for doing that! I did not know it needed to be rotated cause it showed correctly for me:S That is strange

Yes, but in post #1 you said that $b$ is not in $\text{col}(A)$.

That'S cause I got actually wrong number in My matrice somehow.. Sorry My bad and now I correctly Solved it

(3,2) = 3(1,1) + (-1)(0,1). This proves b is in col(A).

******

On the other question if a(1,0,-1) + b(1,1,1) = (a+b,b,b-a) = (-1,1,1), we must have
