Next, we solve the system Bx=0 and we write the basis of its solution space into the rows of matrix C. What is the relationship in between the rows of matrices A, B and C? 1) The rows of C are linear combinations of the rows of A, but it is possible that a row of A exists such that it is not a linear combination of the rows of C. 2)The rows of B are linear combinations of the rows of A or the rows of C. 3)The linear span of the rows of A is equivalent to that of rows of C. 4)The number of rows of C is greater than the number of rows of A. 5) Nothing above is generally true. I hold a strong suspicion that the answer is 5). The reasoning behind this is the fact that the matrix A might be regular, and therefore the dimension of its solution space is 0 => we don't write anything into B nor C and that invalidates every answer apart from 5). However, I am not entirely sure, so I would like to get a confirmation or refutation. Any input would be greatly welcome, thanks!
