If we rewrite x+y=−3 in slope-intercept form, we get
y = ( - 1 ) x - 3 with a slope of m=(−1)
For any slope m, the slope perpendicular to it is ( - 1 m )
So the slope perpendicular to x+y=−3 is ( - 1 - 1 ) = 1

I am given the following matrix A and I need to find a nullspace of this matrix.
A = ( 2 1 4 1 1 1 1 1 1 0 3 2 3 2 5 0 )
I have found a row reduced form of this matrix, which is:
A = ( 1 0 3 2 0 1 2 3 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 )
And then I used the formula A x = 0, which gave me:
A x = ( 1 0 3 2 0 1 2 3 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 ) ( x 1 x 2 x 3 x 4 ) = ( 0 0 0 0 )
Hence I obtained the following system of linear equations:
{ x 1 + 3 x 3 2 x 4 = 0 x 2 2 x 3 + 3 x 4 = 0
So I just said that x 3 = α, x 4 = β and the nullspace is:
n u l l s p a c e ( A ) = { 2 β 3 α , 2 α 3 β , α , β )   |   α , β R }
Is my thinking correct?
