Can you clarify what you mean by "solve the null vector"? Do you mean that you want to find a vector [tex]x \neq 0[/tex] such that [tex]Ax = 0[/tex]? i.e., to find a nonzero element of the null space?

yes!

yes!

If you want to use Matlab to do it, look up the "null" command:

Z = null(A);

returns an orthonormal basis for the null space of A.
