Left nullspace is solution to A ^ T times Y =0
So we have a free variable for the third row so don't we have infinitely many solutions as x3 could be anything?
In this problem's part b) I don't think that they took the transpose of the matrix A.

Go the bottom of page 1 under 4) and you'll see "
Perform Gaussian (or better, Gauss-Jordan) elimination on [A | I] to produce [U | B] (or
[R | C]). Claim: the last m – r rows of B (which equal those of C because once we get zeroes
there’s no more work to do in those rows) form ...."
So why isn't the last three rows of 0's in A just the left nullspace?
I am trying to figure out why
