##### Solution Summary

Basis, column space and rank are found for a matrix.

##### Solution Preview

Well, the matrix is:

The number of pivot columns in the rref(A) shows the number of linearly independent columns and if we pick the corresponding columns, they will form a basis for the column space of the given matrix. Therefore, we must find rref(A) using elementary row/column operations and we get:

Well, only the first and second columns are the ...
