That’s a lot of exercises, but you should have already attempted them all as part of the HW sets. Also we’ve gone through a fair number of these in class.

I suggest you tackle a couple sections per day–read thru the examples, try Practice Problems, and then work through the exercises.

I’ll try to write up solutions for a couple exercises in each section and post here over the weekend.

can you write the solution to questions 4 and 5 in section 1.1 .

Do you mean the problems on p10, asking you to #4: find the point of interesection of the two given lines and #5: describe in words the next couple row operations? The solution for #5 is in the back of the book. For #4, just set up the augmented matrix for the system of two equations and solve.

I am attaching solutions for #19 in Sec 1.1 and #19 in Sec 1.2

For 1.1.4, you should be able to row reduce to the following row reduced echelon form:

[ 1 0 -3
0 1 -5 ]
