Multiplication of Vectors by scalars (Scalar Multiplication): R × R n R n ( c, x ) 7→ c x c, x 1 x 2 . . x n · 7→ cx 1 cx 2 . . cx n Addition of Vectors: R n × R n R n ( x , y ) 7→ x + y x 1 x 2 . . x n , y 1 y 2 . . y n · 7→ x 1 + y 1 x 2 + y 2 . . x n + y n Properties of these Operations: see Theorem 1.3 page 10. These properties are consequences of the fact that in each coordi- nate we multiply or add real numbers. These operations inherit of the properties of addition and multiplication of real numbers. 0 is neutral (rather than identity) for addition, - x is the opposite of x (rather than inverse for addition). These properties give sense to Linear Combinations. Exercises to make sure you understand the definitions: 7 , 8 , 6 . 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.
