    Weelll, it is not so simple to prove a false assertion....

    Since it is closed to linear combinations and closed to multiplication by a scalar - it IS a vector space. 4-Dimensional by the way.

    I know what your Lecturer/book THINKS ( and he/she is wrong !) - it thinks that P(x) = 7x +3 is not 4-th degree. But unfortunately for him/her it formally IS

    Consider the set of all expressions of the form\[\sum_{i=0}^{4} a_i * x^i\] where a_i are real/complex and x is a formal letter.

    Adding the Linear combination of two objects like that will always result in the same FORM\[\sum_{i=1}^{4} a_i x^i + \sum_{i=1}^{4} b_i x^i = \sum_{i=1}^{4} (a_i + b_i) x^i\]

    The fact that sometimes a_4 + b_4 = 0 shall not be of any problem
