Let Z denote the set of all integers with addition defined in the usual way, and define scalar multiplication, denoted o, by:
alpha o k = [[alpha]].k for all k in Z
where [[alpha]] denotes the greatest integer less than or equal to alpha, for example,
2.25 o 4 = [[2.25]].4 =2..4 = 8
show that Z, together with these operations, is not a vector space. Which axioms fail to hold?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I agree with the second answer, but why the Distributivity of scalar multiplication with respect to field addition fail to hold ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2straight out of wikipedia Distributivity of scalar multiplication with respect to field addition (a + b)v = av + bv let a=2.5 and b=3.5

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0what was ur approach to finding the solutions please ? did you test for all axioms one by one ?
