Show all work. Always indicate carefully what you are doing in each step; otherwise it may not be possible to give you appropriate partial credit. 1. [6 points] Let W 1 and W 2 be linear subspaces of a vector space V such that W 1 + W 2 = V and W 1 W 2 = { 0 } . Prove that for each vector α V there are unique vectors α 1 W 1 and α 2 W 2 such that α = α 1 + α 2 .
