Well for starters in order for a vector to be a subspace it must be linearly dependant

Since ( 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)

hmmmm I would go about it just a drop differently

\[ \left( \begin{array}{ccc} 2 & 1 & 1 \\ 3 & 1 & 2 \\ 4 & 1 & 3 \end{array} \right)\] 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

\[ \left( \begin{array}{ccc} 1 & {1 \over 2} & {1 \over 2} \\ 3 & 1 & 2 \\ 4 & 1 & 3 \end{array} \right)\] 1/2R_1=R_1

you 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).
