Let A be the matrix below and define a transformation $T:{\mathbb{R}}^{3}\to {\mathbb{R}}^{3}$ by $T\left(U\right)=AU.$. For each of the vectors $B$ below, find a vector $U$ such that $T$ maps $U$ to $B$, if possible. Otherwise state that there is no such $U$.
$\left(\begin{array}{ccc}1& -3& 2\\ 2& -4& 4\\ 3& -8& 6\end{array}\right)=A$
a) $\left(\begin{array}{c}4\\ 6\\ 11\end{array}\right)=B$
b) $\left(\begin{array}{c}-3\\ -2\\ -7\end{array}\right)=B$

The reason you found no inverse is because A is not invertible. This can be seen by showing that detA=0

Hint: write $U=\left({u}_{1},{u}_{2},{u}_{3}\right)$ and then work out $AU$ in terms of these components. You now have a system of linear equations to solve in the form $AU=B$.
