u4 is a linear combo of u1, u2, and u3, so there are constants a, b, c (not all zero) such that u4 = a*u1 + b*u2 + c*u3. That means that a*u1 + b*u2 + c*u3 + (-1)u4 = 0. So we have a nontrivial linear combination of the u's that add to 0. This means that the vectors are linearly dependent. So the matrix that includes those vectors as column vectors is linearly dependent by definition.
