Question

# Determine if the columns of the matrix form a linearly independent set. Justify your answer. A. If A is the given matrix, then the augmented matrix trivial solution. Therefore, the columns of A do not form a linearly independent set.represents the equation Ax = 0. The reduced echelon form of this matrix indicates that Ax =0 has only the O B. If A is the given matrix, then the augmented matrix represents the equation Ax = 0. The reduced echelon form of this matrix indicates that Ax = 0 has more than one solution. Therefore, the columns of A form a linearly independent set. OC. If A is the given matrix, then the augmented matrix represents the equation Ax = 0. The reduced echelon form of this matrix indicates that Ax = 0 has only the trivial solution. Therefore, the columns of A form a linearly independent set. O D. If A is the given matrix, then the augmented matrix represents the equation Ax = 0. The reduced echelon form of this matrix indicates that Ax = 0 has more than one solution. Therefore, the columns of A do not form a linearly independent set.  Fig: 1  Fig: 2  Fig: 3  Fig: 4  Fig: 5  Fig: 6
