Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4how do you define 'subspace'. what properties do we look for?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0like for example I have this question in a book that says it is not a subspace. dw:1443912367126:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0subspace of R^2 for that problem^

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It says here... there are rules that must be satisfied to know if something is a subspace of R^2: \[x + y \in S\\ tx \in S\] x and y are vectors

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So basically what factors define an area of R\(^2\) ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4is (x1,x2) in the vector space?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I'm guessing no? because x1 and x2 should be greater than 0?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4thats what im thinking to and there is no restriction in the value of our scalar is there?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4(x1, x2) is not in the defined set

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So it means, I just have to check the conditions in the given set if they follow those two rules? If they don't follow it, then it is not a subspace? am i understanding it right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4correct, if the properties are not satisfied in order to be defined as something, then we cannot claim that it exists as that thing.
