**Exercise 2.1 **Cx= b x= [ 1.0714 1.2143

1.5714 ]

- My solution is correct.

**INPUT:** >> x = C\d

**OUTPUT:** x =

1.0714 1.2143

1.5714

**INPUT: >**>C*x-d

**OUTPUT: **ans =

12.2143 9.2143 8.2143

11.5000 8.5000 7.5000

3.2857 0.2857 -0.7143

**Exercise 2.2 **

**INPUT:** >> x= [-10 4; 15 -6]

**OUTPUT: **x =

-10 4

15 -6

**INPUT:** >> y=[0 0]

**OUTPUT: **y =

0 0

**INPUT: >> h=x/y **

**OUTPUT: **Warning: Rank deficient, rank = 0, tol = 0.000000e+00.

h =

0

0

My solution is the same. The error exists because the augmented matrix, h, is inconsistent because the last column contains a pivot.

**Exercise 2.3 **

**INPUT: **>> rref ([C d])

**OUTPUT: **ans =

1 -3 2 0

0 0 0 0

0 0 0 0

There are 2 free variables.

**Exercise 2.4 **

The columns all add up to one because each additive represents a percentage. 1 is 100 % and each row within the additive of 1 represents a factor of that 1. **Exercise 2.5 **

The left-hand side of the equation coefficients are scalars of the variables f, t, c, m, and b. These coefficients represent A in the equation A**x**=**b. **The variables f, t, c, m, and b are within the vector **x** in A**x**=**b**, their letters represent the Farmer, Tailor, Carpenter, Miner, and Slack Bob respectively. Vector x also represents what these variable produce, Food, Clothes, Housing, Energy, and Alcohol respectively. Matrix A represents the percentage of consumption these variables of vector **x** represent. The right-hand side of the equation, b, represent the total price of each good of Food, Clothes, Housing, Energy, and Alcohol respectively.

General Solution: p1=.8025b, p2=.5919b, p3= .7108b, p4=.7520, p5=free

The highest priced commodity is food and the lowest priced

- commodity is clothes. Highest to Lowest Income: Farmer, Miner, Carpenter, Tailor, Slacker

Bob, in which Slacker Bob is a free variable. Slacker Bob has the highest income because the other occupations are just fractions of his income.

If Slacker Bob sells $40,000 a year, the corresponding Gross incomes are true, Farmer=$32100, Tailor=$23676, Carpenter=$28432, and Miner=$30080.
