No late assignments will be collected. You must turn in this sheet. This assignment is OPTIONAL and will count as extra credit for Quiz 3. Name: UID: 1. Consider the following system of equations. 2x + y + t = a x+t+w =b y+z+t=c x + 2y + z + w = d x+z+t+w =e (a) (1 point) Write down the matrix of coefficients A for this system. (b) (7 points) Find A−1 (augment A with the identity and apply row operations). (c) (2 points) Take as a, b, c, d, e the last 5 digits of your UID and solve the system above using A−1 . (For instance, if your UID is 00123456, then you should take a = 2, b = 3, c = 4, d = 5, e = 6).
