Given A = [[1,3,5,0],[0,1,4,-2]] (where A is a 2x4 matrix, incase you dont know my notation): Find a basis for the nul(A). Then, describe the geometry of the nul(A).

I just don't get what the "basis" for the null is; the linear combinations? We can automatically tell that it's lin. dependent because we can't get pivots in every row, so how do you get a lin combo.
