Linear algebra question on Im

  1. Feb 3, 2009 #1
    i got this matrix
    1 1 k
    0 1-k k-1
    0 0 (k-1)(k+2)

    for k=-2
    1 1 -2
    0 -1 -3
    0 0 0


    the k matrix is row reduced
    so after i put k=-2 and transposed it.
    i get no all 0 lines
    so i need to do row reduction again??

    What does that mean--"finding Im"?

    Going back to your first post, you said you "put k=-2 and transposed it." What does "it" refer to? The matrix? Or do you mean that you interchanged two rows?
