(a) Find an LU-factorization of A i.e. use row operations to find U, an upper triangular matrix equivalent to A and L, a lower triangular matrix such that A  LU . (b) Find the determinant of A.  3 1 3  1  4 2 0  and b   1  . 2. Let A      2 2 1 4    

(a) Find the determinant of A. (b) Solve the linear system Ax  b by the Cramer’s rule. a  3.
