## Problem 303

Let $A$ be a real $7\times 3$ matrix such that its null space is spanned by the vectors
$\begin{bmatrix} 1 \\ 2 \\ 0 \end{bmatrix}, \begin{bmatrix} 2 \\ 1 \\ 0 \end{bmatrix}, \text{ and } \begin{bmatrix} 1 \\ -1 \\ 0 \end{bmatrix}.$ Then find the rank of the matrix $A$.

## Problem 36

If $L:\R^2 \to \R^3$ is a linear transformation such that
\begin{align*}
L\left( \begin{bmatrix}
1 \\
0
\end{bmatrix}\right)
=\begin{bmatrix}
1 \\
1 \\
2
\end{bmatrix}, \,\,\,\,
L\left( \begin{bmatrix}
1 \\
1
\end{bmatrix}\right)
=\begin{bmatrix}
2 \\
3 \\
2
\end{bmatrix}.
\end{align*}
then

(a) find $L\left( \begin{bmatrix} 1 \\ 2 \end{bmatrix}\right)$, and

(b) find the formula for $L\left( \begin{bmatrix} x \\ y \end{bmatrix}\right)$.

If you think you can solve (b), then skip (a) and solve (b) first and use the result of (b) to answer (a).
