1.5. 1.5. Linear Dependence and Linear Independence 1 . (a) If S is a linearly dependent set, then each vector in S is a linear combina- tion of other vector in S . Ans : F (Example) V = R 3 , S = { e 1 = (1 , 0 , 0) ,e 2 = (0 , 1 , 0) ,e 3 = (0 , 0 , 1) ,e 4 = (1 , 1 , 0) } { e 1 ,e 2 ,e 3 } : linearly independent { e 1 ,e 2 ,e 4 } : linearly dependent (b) Any set containing the zero vector is linearly dependent. Ans : T ( ) a F, 0 = a · 0 , a 6 = 0 (c) The empty set is linearly dependent. Ans : F ( ) linearly dependent set must be non-empty. (d) Subsets of linearly dependent sets are linearly dependent. Ans : F ( ) theorem 1.6 (e) Subsets of linearly independent sets are linearly independent. Ans : T ( ) the corollarly from theorem 1.6 (f) If a 1 x 1 + a 2 x 2 + ··· + a n x n = 0 and x 1 ,x 2 , ··· ,x n are linearly independent, then all the scalars a i are zero. Ans : T ( ) from the definition. 2 . (a), (d), (e), (g), (h), (j) : linearly independent (b), (c), (f), (i) : linearly dependent 24 PNU-MATH
