Matrices & Determinants Solutions

(a) Show that the vectors v1 = (1,2,1,0), v2 = (2,6,0,2) and v3 = (3,7,2,2) form a linearly independent set in R^4.
(b) Find a fourth vector v4 in R^4 such that {V1, V2, V3, V4} is a linearly independent set in R^4.
(c) Explain, stating and using a result from Section 5 in the Course Notes, why your set {v1, v2, v3, v4} is a basis of R4.
(d) What is the row rank of the matrix:
A= 1 2 1 0
2 6 0 2
3 7 2 2
