Problem 2. In each part you are given the augmented matrix of a system
of linear equations, with the coefficient matrix in reduced row
echelon form. Determine if the system is consistent and, if it is consistent, find
all solutions.

of linear equations, with the coefficient matrix in row echelon
form. (Not reduced row echelon form!) Use back substitution to find all the

Problem 4. In each part, solve the linear system using the Gauss-Jordan
method (i.e., reduce the coefficent matrix to Reduced Row Echelon Form). Show the augmented matrix you start with and the augmented
matrix you finish with. It’s not necessary to show individual row operations,
you can just find the Reduced Row Echelon Form with your calculator.

Problem 5. In each part, use row operations to determine if the matrix A is
invertible and, if so, to find the inverse. Display the inverse by
itself. Give the matrix entries in fractional form.
A. In this part, show the individual row operations and the resulting matrices.
Be sure to display the label for the row operation being performed. You can
use a calculator for the row operations, if you want.

Problem 6. Consider row operations on matrices with 3 rows.
Recall that for each row operation there is a corresponding 3 &times; 3 elementary
matrix E so that EA is the same as the matrix obtained by applying the row
operation to A.
A. Consider the row operation R2 ↔ R3 .
i.) Find the corresponding elementary matrix E.
ii.) Find the inverse of E
B. Consider the row operation R3 ← 5R3 .
i.) Find the corresponding elementary matrix E.
ii.) Find the inverse of E
C. Consider the row operation R1 ← R1 − 3R3
i.) Find the corresponding elementary matrix E.
ii.) Find the inverse of E.
