If anyone could explain how the following is done, it would be greatly appreciated. Give an example of the following. If no example exists, explain why. - A set of vectors in M sub 3,4 which are linearly independent but do not span M sub 3, 4

[1,0,0,0] [0,0,0,0] [0,0,0.0] and [0,1,0,0] [1,0,0,0] [0,0,0,0] are linearly independent and do not span M_{3,4} and so are the elements of a set with the desired property. RonL

RonL would not those matrices need a third row? since they have to be elements of M_{3,4}?
