Example: Given a matrix defining a linear mapping Find a basis for the null space and a basis for the range Pamela Leutwyler

Let M be the matrix for the linear mapping T ( ie: )

Note: This vector is in the null space of T The vectors in the null space are the solutions to Let M be the matrix for the linear mapping T ( ie: )

Let M be the matrix for the linear mapping T ( ie: ) To find a basis for the null space of T you must solve:
