Consider in R 3 the vectors: u = 1 1 , v = 2 2 1 , w = 2 , and b = 3 4 5 . (a) Determine whether { u, v, w } is a linearly independent set. (b) Determine whether b is in the subspace spanned by { u, v, w } . Solution: (a) Clearly not linearly independent, since v = 2 u + 1 2 w . (b) Consider h A . . . b i = 1 2 . . . 3 1 2 . . . 4 1 2 . . . 5 1 2 . . . 3 . . . 1 1 2 . . . 5 1 2 . . . 3 1 2 . . . 5 . . . 1 so Rank ( A . . . b ) = 3 and Rank ( A ) = 2. b is not in the Columnspace ( A ). Therefore, b is not in the subspace of R 3 which is spanned by { u, v, w } ....
