Hello everyone...(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I have the following matrix:

A =

-1 -4 1

7 -9 0

10 3 -3

-9 1 2

I can't row reduce this sucker! This isn't an agumented matrix i don't think, so i can't just take the square matrix and then find the inverse and mutliply it by vector b to find the values of a, b, c, d; So because i can't do this, i'm getting suck on figuring out the Nullspace and image space. What is the procedure to find the null and image space of a matrix that isn't nxn?

I'm trying to check it with maple ( a math program ) to see if there but i created the matrix, did all that good stuff now typed in Nullspace(A) mod P; what mod am i suppose to use, they didn't explain that part. But i'd rather have an explanation than a program doing it for me. Thanks.
