    If you divide the first row by -1, the second row by 3, and the third row by -3, we reduce matrix A to 1 -3 -2 1 -3 -2 1 -3 -3. Its row-echelon form is 1 -3 -2 0 0 0 0 0 0. Therefore, a basis for the one-dimensional vector space that is the image of the transformation A from R^3 to R is the column vector [1, -3, -2]^T.

    WHAT IF WE ARE TRYING TO FIND THE BASIS OF NULLSPACE(A) ? :D

    Finding a basis for the nullspace is equivalent to solving a system of equations. Ax = 0 find the set of all x that satisfies it.
