Real three-space
Subspaces of R 3 The next slide gives a sample of subspaces of the vector space R 3 : the entire space, planes, lines, and the trivial subspace. Subsets are drawn connected to their supersets on the levels directly above and below. On the level one up from the bottom, the second and third subspaces are lines because the conjunction of the two conditions means that each is the intersection of two planes.

R 3 xy -plane { x y z | x + y + z = 0 } { x y z | x + 2z = 0 } . . . y -axis { x y z | x - y + z = 0 and x + 2z = 0 } { x y z | y = 2x and z = 0 } . . . trivial subspace { 0 0 0 }
Express subspaces as spans Example Consider the plane. P = { x y z | x + y + z = 0 } Take the condition x + y + z = 0 as a one-equation linear system and parametrize. P = { - y - z y z | y, z R } = { - 1 1 0 y + - 1 0 1 z | y, z R } Thus the plane is this span. P = [ { - 1 1 0 , - 1 0 1 } ]

This shows P . The two vectors from the spanning set are in red. For each, its body lies in the plane.
Example For the plane ˆ P = { x y z | x + 2z = 0 } repeat the process ˆ P = { - 2z y z | y, z R } = { 0 1 0 y + - 2 0 1 z | y, z R } to express it as a span. ˆ P = [ { 0 1 0 , - 2 0 1 } ]

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
