We know that null space of a mxn matrix with rank r is nr. I think this wrong for some cases. Consider a square matrix that is invertible and suppose the unique solution it has got is zero vector. So, now the rank is same as n and hence nr = 0. So the dimension of null space should be zero but its 1 with basis containing only null vector. Am I wrong somewhere?
