The first and second equations are satisfied if x 1 = 2 x 2 . The third equation is satisfied if 2 x 1 = x 2 . This is only possible if x 1 and x 2 are both zero. Therefore A has a zero nullspace. (b) Only m n-matrices with m n can have a zero nullspace. For this matrix, we can note that x = (3 , 1 , 0) is in the nullspace. (c) We have Ax = bracketleftBigg D B bracketrightBigg x = bracketleftBigg Dx Bx bracketrightBigg . Ax = 0 means Dx = 0 and Bx = 0. D is diagonal with nonzero diagonal elements, so Dx = 0 is only possible if x is zero. We conclude that A has a zero nullspace, regardless of the properties of B . (d) We have Ax = ( I U ) x = x Ux, so Ax = 0 means x = Ux . This is not possible for nonzero x because bardbl Ux bardbl bardbl U bardblbardbl x bardbl &amp;lt; bardbl x bardbl if bardbl U bardbl &amp;lt; 1 and x negationslash = 0. Therefore A has a zero nullspace. 2. Exercise 9.13.

On the left-hand side we get ( I + A T A ) A T = A T +...
