(1) This problem concerns the matrix A = (1   2   2   1)        1   1   1   1       1   0   1   1.
(a) Is (1 )   -1   -1   1 in the null space of A?



(b) Is [2  9  7  2]  in the row space of A?

 



(2)    | 0   0   1   1 | =    2   2   2   2    0   4   4   4    0   0   0   5   
(3) Find the inverse of this matrix without doing any row reductions. (Hint: is it orthogonal?) (1           1            1               )  -          --         -------  2           2      ...              1  -          -                     -------  2          2          0          Sqrt[2]
