Problem 1. Find out the solution set of the following system of linear equation. Represent the
null space by the way you like(Try multible way is recommended)
(1)
3x + 7y + 5z = 13
5x + 2y = 5
x + z = 3
(2)
3x + 3y + 5z = 11
x + 2y = 3

(3)
x + y + z = 6
(4)
3x + 2y + z = 5
4x + y + 6z = 7
10x + 5y + 8z = 17
(5)
3x + 2y + z = 5
4x + y + 6z = 8
10x + 5y + 8z = 17
Problem 2. Find all possible value of λ for each of the following problem,
(1) such that this linear Equation have unique solution
(3 + λ)x + 2y + z = 5
4x + y + 6z = 8
10x + 5y + 8z = 17
(2) such that this lienar Equation have non-zero solution
(1 + λ)x − 2y = 0
2x + (5 + λ)y = 0
Problem 3. Suppose you have two bottles of alcohol solution. The first bottle the concentration of
alcohol is 30%, in the second bottle the concentration of alcohol is 50%, in which ratio will you mix
them to get an alcohol solution have concentration 45%?

Problem 4. Now m, n is two fixed number, in a discussion titled ”which m × n matrix do you
like”. The two people says”
Ricky:
I like all the matrix Am×n, such that the system of lienar equation Ax = b always has solution
no matter what b is! Let’s call this kind of matrix as Ricky’s Matrix
Michel:
I like all the matrix Am×n, such that AT x = 0 only have 0 solution! Let’s call this kind of matrix
as Michel’s Matrix
Host:
Well, I claim that every Ricky’s matrix is Michel’s matrix. and every Michel’s matrix is also
Ricky’s matrix.
Is that true? if it is, proof.
(Hint: suppose y is a solution, consider 0 = 0x = (AT y)
T x = y
T Ax = y
T
b, bacause we can find
x which could enable b to be any vector, that forces y to be 0)
