Solve four out of six problems below. If you attempt to solve more than four
problems, mark the ones that you want to be graded.
1.
Intersections in England are olten constructed as one way
“roundabouts,” such as the one shown in the figure. Assume
that traffic must travel in the directions shown. Find the
general solution of the network flow. Find the smallest
possible value for x

4. What is the definition of a vector space?
5. Let V be a vector space and fV its subspace. Is the set:
A
=
{5w : w
E
W}
a subspace?
If you think it is, prove it. If not, give an example of U, W for which A is not a subspace.
6. Consider a space of functions UR. Using the axioms of real numbers and the definition of vector
addition and scalar-vector multiplication in ,
prove that for any f, g, h E fiR,
(f+g)+hrf+(g+h)
Do one step at a time and state clearly what axiom or definition you use at each step.

A vector space V over the scalar field
is a set with two operations “+“ and
Operation “+“,
called vector addition, takes two elements of V and returns one element of V. Operation
called
scalar-vector multiplication takes one real number and one element of V and returns one element of V.
The operations satisfy the following conditions:
“•“.
“•“,
Axioms of a vector space V:
arbitrary u, v, w c V and for arbitrary c, d E O we have
u+v=v+u
(u+v)+w=u+(v+w)
there exists a natural element of addition 0 c IR, which satisfies u
there exists an additive inverse (—u), such that
