For vectors to belong to the set of basis 1. they should be linearly independent 2. They should span the space R3.

Okay, would proving the determinant is nonzero be sufficient?

That would probably prove that they are linearly independent right? you will have to show that for any point (a,b,c) in R3 (a,b,c) = k1v1+k2v2+k3v3

Yes i see. Linear independence would be proved. After making Linear combinations would i then sub in a=0, b=0 and c=0 to see if k1=k2=k3=0?
