1. Answer the following true/false questions. Include a short explanation.
a) Elementary row operations on an augmented matrix never change the solution set of
the associated linear system.
b) An inconsistent system has more than one solution.
c) If two vectors have a dot product of 0, then the angle between them is 90 degrees.
d) If one row in an echelon form of an augmented matrix is [0 0 0 0 6], then the
associated linear system is inconsistent.
e) Whenever a system has free variables,the solution set contains many solutions.
f) If two vectors have a cross product of 0, then they are parallel.
g) If the equation Ax = b is inconsistent, then b is not in the set spanned by the columns
of A.
