Sure. Just not of the basis.

I mean... for instance, if we let \(\large V\) be a vector space with basis \(\large \{\vec{v_1},\vec{v_2},\vec{v_3}\}\) Now suppose we have a vector \[\large \vec u \in V\] Such that \(\large \vec u = a_1\vec{v_1}+a_2\vec{v_2}+a_3\vec{v_3}\)

Now suppose the vector \(\large \vec u\) had "another" linear combination, this time: \[\large \vec u = b_1\vec{v_1}+b_2\vec{v_2}+b_3\vec{v_3}\]
terenzreignz
  • terenzreignz
Then since both of them are equal to \(\large \vec u\) It stands to reason that: \[\large a_1\vec{v_1}+a_2\vec{v_2}+a_3\vec{v_3}=\vec u = b_1\vec{v_1}+b_2\vec{v_2}+b_3\vec{v_3}\]

Or... \[\large a_1\vec{v_1}+a_2\vec{v_2}+a_3\vec{v_3} = b_1\vec{v_1}+b_2\vec{v_2}+b_3\vec{v_3}\] I just removed \(\large \vec u\) from the equation ^_^

Now, using the addition property, we get: \[\large a_1\vec{v_1}+a_2\vec{v_2}+a_3\vec{v_3} -\left( b_1\vec{v_1}+b_2\vec{v_2}+b_3\vec{v_3} \right)=\vec 0 \]

`look at the parallelogram rule for vector addition, that displays 2 different combinations to result in the sum` that won't work because the parallel sides are actually the same vector it's like adding in different orders a+b = b+a
terenzreignz
  • terenzreignz
Let's "simplify" \[\large (a_1-b_1)\vec{v_1}+(a_2-b_2)\vec{v_2}+(a_3-b_3)\vec{v_3}=\vec 0\]
terenzreignz
  • terenzreignz
Now, do you remember that bases (plural of basis, anyone? haha) must be LINEAR INDEPENDENT? It means any linear combination of the basis that gives the zero vector must force all the coefficients to be zero ^_^ \[\Large a_1-b_1 = 0\\\Large a_2-b_2 = 0\\\Large a_3-b_3 = 0\] Or in other words: \[\Large a_1=b_1\\\Large a_2=b_2 \\\Large a_3=b_3\] Means it must have been the same linear combination. Now if it wasn't the basis, or it wasn't a linear independent spanning set, things could be different ^^

does this mean the sketch is correct therefore solution is no?

good one @terenzreignz

i will sit here and read while you type the entire course review,

@triciaal no the sketch can be correct, different vectors, not parallelogram terenz showed that you can not use the Basis of the space

not a vector, well i guess it is maybe in 1D. lol

the direction is + or -
