(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A linear map T: ℝ[itex]^{m}[/itex]-> R[itex]^{n}[/itex] has rank k. State the value of the nullity of T.

3. The attempt at a solution

I know that rank would be the number of leading columns in a reduced form and the nullity would simply be the number of non-leading columns, or total columns - rank.

As we are not given how many different vectors are in the matrix, I'm not too sure how to give a value.
