## Homework Statement

Let A be the matrix

A =

1 −3 −1 2

0 1 −4 1

1 −4 5 1

2 −5 −6 5

(a) Find basis of the column space. Find the coordinates of the dependent columns relative

to this basis.

(b) What is the rank of A?

(c) Use the calculations in part (a) to ﬁnd a basis for the row space.

## The Attempt at a Solution

I used Gauss-Jordan operations on the matrix to solve it down to :

1 0 -13 5

0 1 -4 1

0 0 1 0

0 0 0 0

From here we can see which columns are linearly independent and which are dependent. But I don't understand what they want me to write for a solution for the coordinates.

Would they simply be:

(1,0,-13)

(0,1,-4)

(0,0,1)

??

b) Not sure exactly what this means even after researching, how do I determine the rank ?

c) I feel I can do after I complete a)

Thanks
