Rank filler --- Introduction ---

The rank of a matrix plays a very important role in linear algebra. It conditions the linear dependence of vectors, or the existence of non-zero solution of a homogeneous linear system.

This exercise gives you a matrix (presented under different forms: vectors, linear system), some elements of which are missing. You have to find the values of the missing elements, such that the matrix has a rank smaller than its size.

Choose the form of the presentation:

And the level of difficulty: 1   2   3   4   5   6   7   8   9  

If you are expert, you may choose parameters of the exercise in a detailed menu.
