— Problem Set
2
This problem set covers systems of linear equations and Gaussian elimination,
basics of column vectors and
R
m
, and a little bit about linear spaces. As usual,
solve all the problems, then write up and turn in those marked with an asterisk.

Decide whether each of these sets, with the natural operations, is a linear space.
(All you need to do is to decide whether the conditions in

are all satis±ed.)
You need not justify your answer.
a. The space of all
