Elementary Matrices, Invertible Matrices and Systems of Equations are investigated. The solution is detailed and well presented. The response received a rating of "5/5" from the student who originally posted the question.

Please prove the statements shown below:
1. If the elementary matrix E results from performing a certain row operation on an identity matrix Im and if A is an m x n matrix, then the product EA is the matrix that results when this same roe operation is performed on A.
2. Every elementary matrix is invertible, and the invers

1. Consider the system of equations
x + y + 2z = a
x + z = b
2x + y + 3z = c
Show that for this system to be consistent, the constants a, b, and c must satisfy c = a + b.
2. Show that the elementary row operations do not affect the solution set of a linear system.
3. Consider the system of equations
ax + by =

One of the problems of storing data in a matrix (a two-dimensional Cartesian structure) is that if not all of the elements are used, there might be quite a waste of space. In order to handle this, we can use a construct called a "sparse matrix", where only the active elements appear. Each such element is accompanied by its two i

Using MatLab, compute H^-1H for various n between 5 and 15. Describe the results and comment on the difference between the MatLab output and what is expected the answer to be (given that H is invertible for all n). At what point does Matlab give a warning indicating that it may not be giving the correct answer?
