Simple enough question really, I need to put this matrix into reduced row echelon form: 0 0 0 4 | 0 0 0 3 3 | 0 0 2 2 2 | 0 1 1 1 1 | 0 I'm not sure why, but I really have a hard time wrapping my head around reduced row echelon, or even just row echelon. It's pretty basic, I just need to put it into reduced row echelon form so that I can find whether or not it's linearly dependent. Thanks, sorry for the dumb question
