    I have two questions that I need help with.
    1) How would you find a basis of the kernel, a basis of the image and determine the dimension of each for this matrix? The
    matrix is in the attachment.
    2) Are the following 3 vectors linearly dependent? (see attachment for the three vectors) How can you decide?

    I hope you can help me. Thanks.

    Linear Algebra questions are indeed tricky. I have attached the solutions (see attachment) (also below, but see the attached file has the best formatting). I hope this helps in your understanding of these types of linear algebraic problems.


    Problem 1:

    The kernel is the vector subspace that maps into the zero vector. It
    represents the number of dimensions lost in the transformation. So:

    Dimension of range = dimension of domain - dimension of kernel

    The rank ...
