Hi, did I quick search, didn't find anything like this, so there you go. 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

Hey, so basically reduced row echelon form is getting the whole matrix down to 1's and 0's (for the MOST part). here are some examples: 1 0 * 0 1 * 1 * 0 0 * 0 0 0 1 0 * 0 0 0 0 1 * 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 where the *'s can be anything you just use elementary row operations to it to look that way hope that helped
