So x 1 + x 2 = 0, i.e. x 2 =- x 1 . So the solutions are x 1 x 2 = x 2- 1 1 . Hence Nul A = Span {- 1 1 } . (b) For the above A , is the corresponding linear transformation onto? Jus- tify your answer. Answer : For a square matrix, the corresponding linear transformation is onto if and only if it is invertible. But det A = 1 · 1- 1 · 1 = 0 . So it is not onto. 2 2.
