x + 4y z + w = 2
3x + 2y + z + 2w = 5
2x 8y + 2z 2w = 4
x 6y + 3z

= 1

(b) Use Mathematica's command RowReduce to obtain the reduced rowechelon form and hence check that your answer in (a) is correct. [See
attached Mathematica document.]
(c) Use the Gauss-Jordan elimination to solve the system.

we have

(i) There are no solutions if a = 4. (ii) There is exactly one solution if
a 6= 4. (iii) There are innitely many solutions if a = 4. This can be
deduced from matrix (1), where, if a = 4, then the last row is a row of
(x, y, z) =

zeros.
(b) For part (iii), with a value of a you found, plot the three equations in
3-dimensional space in one diagram using Plot3D command for values of
x, y [5, 5]. Your graphs should all meet along a line in 3-D space. Get
the best possible view by rotating the diagram and submit that view.

matrix.

Since we cannot have the form [I|A1 ], the coecient matrix, A, does not have
an inverse.

## (2) Mathematica shows that A is singular. See notebook attached.

(3) It is clear from the matrix (2) that there are innitely many solutions
because the last row of the row-echelon form of A contains only zeros.

(ii)
x1 + x2 + 2x3 = 8

PART II Applied Problems (Total: 70 Marks)

## 5 Predictive Modeling [15 MARKS]

Read Problem 17, page 32, of our textbook Elementary Linear Algebra by
Larson, 7th Edition.
(1) Derive the polynomial and predict the population in 2020 and 2030.
9

## Year 30 is 2020 and Year 40 is 2030. We want to t the polynomial

p = a0 + a1 t + a2 t2 , t 0

## where t is in years, and p is in millions, through the points,

(t, p) = (0, 249), (10, 281), (20, 309)

a0

= 249

## a0 + 10a1 + 100a2 = 281

a0 + 20a1 + 400a2 = 309

## or, since a0 = 249, we have simply

10a1 + 100a2 = 281 249 = 32
20a1 + 400a2 = 309 249 = 60

This is simple to solve to get (a1 , a2 ) = (17/5, 1/50). Thus, the polynomial is

1
17
t t2 , t 0
5
50
Thus, in 2020, that is, after t = 30 years, the population will be p(30) =
333 million, and in 2030, that is, after t = 40years, p(40) = 353 million.
p(t) = 249 +

(2) Use Mathematica to plot the polynomial and extend it to include the
years up to 2030.

p

300
200
100
0

10

Here t = 0, 10, 20, 30, 40 represent 1990, 2000, 2010, 2020 and 2030, respectively.

(a) From the last row of the matrix, which has all zero entries, we know there
are innitely many solutions. Now, let x5 = s, s R, and x3 = r, r R.
Then we have the solutions of the form
(x1 , x2 , x3 , x4 , x5 ) = (700 [r + s], 300 [r + s], r, 100 s, s)

## (b) If x3 = 0 and x5 = 100, then

(x1 , x2 , x3 , x4 , x5 ) = (600, 200, 0, 0, 100)

## (c) If x3 = 100 and x5 = 100, then
