Mathematical modeling using systems of linear first order equations

Two tanks each hold 3 liters of salt water and are connected by two pipes (see figure below) the salt water in each tank is kept well stirred. Pure water flows into tank A at a rate of 5 liters per minute and the salt mixture exits tank B at the same rate. Salt water flows from tank A to tank B at the rate of 9 liters per min

Linear Algebra : Leontief Input-Output Model and Real-World Applications

1. Why did Leontief use linear algebra techniques to create his model? Can you think of alternative methods? 2. What are the main strengths of his model? 3. Does it have any limitations (that you can think of)? 4. How might the Input-Output model be useful in the real world? (In other words, would anyone except an Economist

Mathematical System

I am having a problem drawing the table for the following system: Define a universal set U as the set of counting numbers. Form a new set that contains all possible subsets of U. This new set of subsets together with the operation of set intersection forms a mathematical system. Then I have to tell which properties that we did

Subsets in n-space

I've been having trouble with this and need some assistance. v - union ^ - intersection If S and T are subsets of Rn, prove that (int S) ^ (int T) = int (S^T) and (int S) v (int T) subset int(SvT)

Systems of Linear Equations : Row Operations and Solutions

1. Find the augmented matrix for each system of linear equations: a. 5x1 + 7x2 + 8x3 = 3 -2x1 + 4x2 + 9x3 = 3 3x1 - 6x2 + x3 = 1 b. 4x1 + x2 - 7x3 = 6 5x1 + 7x2 + 2x3 = 3 5x1 + 2x2 + 5x3 = 7 c. 3x1 - 2x2 + 2x3 = 7 5x1 + 7x2 + 3x3 = 3 -5x1 + 6x2 - 8x3 = -5 2. Using elementary row operations reduce each of the augm
