Part A
1. Given the matrix A and vector ~b below, find the following: (a) RREF of
[A|~b] (the intermediate elimination steps need not be defined); (b) the
number of free variables and what they are; (c) homogeneous solution
of A~xH = ~0 with ~xH written in vector form; and (d) the general
solution of A~x = ~b written in vector form with the particular solution
and the homogeneous solution(s) in separate vectors.
