Manipulating Basic Linear Equations

The following is offered as a solution of the equation -4[x-2(2x-3)]+1= 1/2(4x-6) -4[x-2(2x-3)]+1=8x-12 -4x-4x+6+1=8x-12 -8x+7=8x-12 7= -12 Because 7 = -12 is not a true equation, the equation has no solution. If this is correct, state that there is no solution. If not, explain in detail why it is not correct

Matrices, Inverse, Transpose, Determinant, Gaussian Elimination and Cramer's Rule

Matrix methods can be used to solve linear programming problems. A linear programming problem is used to find an optimal solution, subject to stated restraints. 1. For example, consider an accountant who prepares tax returns. Suppose a form 1040EZ requires $12 in computer resources to process and 22 minutes of the accountant'

Show that f is proper if and only if f* is continuous

Let X and Y be locally compact Hausdorff spaces. Let X* and Y* be their one point compactifications. Let f be a continuous map from X to Y. Let f* be the map from X* to Y* whose restriction to X is f, and which takes the point at infinity in X* to the point at infinity in Y*. Show that f is proper if and only if f* is contin
