1. [5 pts] Suppose I have a 6x6 matrix Aof real numbers with the following properties:
Ais not invertible.
2 + 3iis an eigenvalue for Awith algebraic multiplicity 1.
4 is an eigenvalue for Awith algebraic multiplicity 2.
Tr(A) = 11
Write down all of the eigenvalues of Aand give their algebraic multiplicities.
2. [4 pts] Suppose that
vand
ware two unit vectors with an angle of π
3between them. Find

3. [6 pts] Suppose Vis a subspace of Rn, and let PVbe the matrix of orthogonal projection onto
V. Prove that, if PVwas invertible, then in fact V=Rn. In this case, the matrix PVwas a
very special nxnmatrix - what matrix was it?
Hint: Depending on your point of view, it may be easier to prove the following equivalent
statement: If V6=Rn, then PVwas not invertible.
4. (a) [6 pts] Suppose that Vand Ware two subspaces of Rn, and PVand PWare the matrices
of orthogonal projection onto each respective subspace. Prove that, if we assume VW,
then PVPWis the zero matrix.
Hint: Let
xbe an arbitrary vector in Rn, and explain why PVPW
x=
0. Then since
x
was arbitrary, conclude that PVPWmust have been the zero matrix.
