(6 points) Let A = 1 1 2 3 0 2 1 4 11 3 1 3 2 8 4 1 1 2 14 4 (a) Find a basis for Col A . (b) Find a basis for Row A . (c) Find a basis for Nul A . Answer: We need to row reduce to echelon form to determine a basis for Col A and Row A , and we need reduced echelon form to determine a basis for Nul A . 1 1 2 3 2 1 4 11 3 1 3 2 8 4 1 1 2 14 4 1 1 2 3 1 0 5 3 2 0 11 4 2 0 11 4 1 0 2 8 3 0 1 0 5 3 0 0 0 1 2 0 0 0 1 2 1 0 2 8 3 1 0 5 3 0 0 1 2 0 0 1 0 2 0 19 1 0 0 13 0 0 1 2 0 0 0 0 The pivots are circled. The pivot columns are columns 1, 2 and 4. The pivot columns of matrix A form a basis for Col A , so Basis for Col A = 1 2 1 1 , 1 1 3 1 , 3 11 8 14 The nonzero rows of an echelon form of A form a basis for Row A , so Basis for Row A = { (1 , , 2 , , 19) , (0 , 1 , , , 13) , (0 , , , 1 , 2) } To find the null space we look at x 1 + 2 x 3 + 19 x 5 = 0 x 2 + 13 x 5 = 0 + x 4 2 x 5 = 0 where x 3 and x 5 are free variables which leads to x 1 = 2 x 3...
