Chapter 3. Vector Spaces Math1111 Span of Vectors Example Example . Let e 1 = ( 1 0 0 ) T , e 2 = ( 0 1 0 ) T , v = ( 0 1 2 ) T . 1. Evaluate (i) Span ( v ) , (ii) Span ( e 1 , v ) , (iii) Span ( e 1 , e 2 , v ) . 2. Describe them geometrically. Ans . (i) Span ( v ) = { ( 0 α 2 α ) : α R } (ii) Span ( e 1 , e 2 ) = { ( α β 0 ) T : α , β R } (iii) Span ( e 1 , e 2 , v ) = R 3 . Theorem 3.2.1 Let v 1 , v 2 , ··· , v n V (vector space). Then, Span ( v 1 , v 2 , ··· , v n ) is a subspace of V .
