Yes it is correct. By the way the matrix has Rank 3 so the dim of the nullspace must be 1 and you found 1 vector in the null space.

So that, strictly speaking, you have NOT yet solved the problem. The "null space" is a one-dimensional subspace of and you have found one vector in that space. How would you represent

**any**vector in the null space? - January 22nd 2011, 05:55 AMSambit
any vector in the null space.....do you mean where is a real number?

Yes, or, to phrase it slightly differently, , the set of all real multiples of your original vector= the subspace spanned by that vector.(Clapping)
