(a) A collection of vectors-→ v 1 , ··· ,-→ v m is defined to be linearly dependent if one of the vectors in the collection is a linear combination of the other vectors in the collection. (You could have also said “if there exists scalars c 1 , ··· ,c m —not all zero—so that c 1-→ v 1 + ··· + c m-→ v m =-→ . ) (b) The dimension of a subspace W is defined to be the number of elements in a basis for W . (c) The book lists 4 properties a matrix must have to be in reduced row echelon form. Two of these properties are (i) the leading entry in every row (i.e., ‘pivot’) is 1 and (ii) if a column contains a pivot, then every other entry in the column is 0....
