Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0span{V1,V2,..Vn}=c1(V1)+c2(V2)+.....cn(Vn); where V is a vector and c is a constant. I then proceed figure out whether its linearly independent or dependent. Does it make sense to write the span portion?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0sorry, i meant figuring out if the set of vectors is linearly dependent or independent.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So what you're saying is that you're looking at spanning sets and you're trying to detect whether some of the vectors are linearly dependent?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If that's the case, I don't see the harm in writing out the span.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0good, its easier for me to see if its L.I or L.D by doing this. I just want to make sure, so that when I take a test on this stuff, the teacher does not look at me like i'm crazy. Thanks.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It's okay. You should look into testing independence between vectors as well. http://www.math.oregonstate.edu/home/programs/undergrad/CalculusQuestStudyGuides/vcalc/lindep/lindep.html is useful, plus many others. Good luck :)
