An illustration of the letter 'A' in a speech bubbles

Given `A=([0,0,3,-2],[0,0,3,-3],[1,-2,3,-2])` , find an invertible matrix U such that A=UR where R is the reduced row echelon form of A:

Using Gaussian reduction the reduced row echelon form of A is :

`"rref"A=([1,-2,0,0],[0,0,1,0],[0,0,0,1])`

U has to be a 3x3...
