Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Well for starters in order for a vector to be a subspace it must be linearly dependant

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Since ( 2,3,4)=(1,1,1)+(1,2,3), it follows that (2,3,4)+t1(1,1,1)+t2(2,3,4)=(t1+1)(1,1,1)+(t2+1)(2,3,4)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1hmmmm I would go about it just a drop differently

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[ \left( \begin{array}{ccc} 2 & 1 & 1 \\ 3 & 1 & 2 \\ 4 & 1 & 3 \end{array} \right)\] I forgot the terms but basically x=(2+1t_1+1t_2)+(3+1t_1+2t_2)+(4+1t_1+3t_2) Now if you would row reduce this then you will see that this matrix is linearly dependant

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you are going to get all 0s in the first column, with one 1 in each of the second and third columns. Thats because (2,3,4)=1(1,1,1)+1(1,2,3).
