Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The most simple way: find the rank of the matrix made up of the spanning vectors. If the matrix is of the same rank as the length of the vector b in question, you know the vector b is in the span. This is an adhoc method if you are checking with a computer in, say, Matlab.
