Index of subgroup and coset of subgroup

Explain what the index of a subgroup and a coset of a group are. Also, prove that if N is a subgroup of a group G such that [G: N] = 2, and if "a" and "b" are elements of G, then the product "ab" is an element of N if and only if either (1) both "a" and "b" are elements of N or (2) neither "a" nor "b" is an element of N.

Reduced Row Echelon Form of Homogeneous Systems of Equations

5. In general, a matrix's row echelon form can vary a bit. A matrix's reduced row echelon form is always unique. In other words, there is only one specific reduced row echelon form matrix associated with each matrix. (a) Consider the following homogeneous system: 2x1 ¡ x2 + x4 + 4x5 = 0 2x1 ¡ 2x2 + x3 + 4x4 ¡ 3x5 = 0 2x
