#### Solution Preview

We are given the matrix

We wish to find the row space, column space, and null space of M, and give their dimensions.

The row space of M is the vector space spanned by the rows of M. To find this vector space, we perform row reduction on M.

Adding twice the first row to the third yields

.

Adding ...

#### Solution Summary

We find bases for the row space, column space, and null space of a given matrix.
