    The rank is the dimension of the image of a linear function between vector spaces.

    So if you interpret a linear function between finite dimensional vector spaces as multiplication with a matrix (so choosing a basis in the vector spaces) the rank of that matrix is the number of maximal linearly independent row / column vectors.

    Or the number of non-zero rows in a matrix can be considered as its rank

    Fill in the table with maximum values for rank and minimum values for nullity for each size of matrix: 4x6 7x3 6x6 and 1x4
