Suppose the n × n matrix A has rank n - r . Let x 1 , x 2 , ··· , x r be linearly independent vectors satisfying A x = 0 . Suppose x is a vector and A x = 0 . Explain why x must be a linear combination of x 1 , x 2 , ··· , x r . 2. For each of the following matrices, find a basis for the row space, a basis for the column space, and a basis for the nullspace. (a) A = 1 - 1 3 5 - 4 - 4 7 - 6 2 (b) A = 1 4 5 2 2 1 3 0 - 1 3 2 2 . 3. Find the rank and nullity of the matrix; the verify that the values obtained satisfy
