Question

Let
{V1, V2,...,Vn} be a linearly independent set of vectors choosen
from vector space V. Define w1=V1, w2= v1+v2, w3=v1+ v2+v3,...,
wn=v1+v2+v3+...+vn.

(a) Show that {w1, w2, w3...,wn} is a linearly independent
set.

(b) Can you include that {w1,w2,...,wn} is a basis for V? Why
or why not?

Answer #1

Let V be a vector space and let v1,v2,...,vn be elements of V .
Let W = span(v1,...,vn). Assume v ∈ V and ˆ v ∈ V but v / ∈ W and ˆ
v / ∈ W. Deﬁne W1 = span(v1,...,vn,v) and W2 = span(v1,...,vn, ˆ
v). Prove that either W1 = W2 or W1 ∩W2 = W.

Prove that
Let S={v1,v2,v3} be a linearly indepedent set of vectors om a
vector space V. Then so are
{v1},{v2},{v3},{v1,v2},{v1,v3}，{v2,v3}

If v1 and v2 are linearly independent vectors in vector space V,
and u1, u2, and u3 are each a linear combination of them, prove
that {u1, u2, u3} is linearly dependent.
Do NOT use the theorem which states, " If S = { v 1 , v 2 , . . . ,
v n } is a basis for a vector space V, then every set
containing
more than n vectors in V is linearly dependent."

A. Suppose that v1, v2, v3 are linearly independant and
w1=v1+v2, w2=v2-v3, w3= v2+v3. Determine whether w1, w2, w3 are
linear independent or linear deppendent.
B. Find the largest possible number of independent vectors
among:
v1=(1,-1,0,0), v2=(1,0,-1,0), v3=(1,0,0,-1), v4=(0,1,-1,0),
v5=(0,1,0,-1), v6=(0,0,1,-1)

Let X be a real vector space. Suppose {⃗v1,⃗v2,⃗v3} ⊂ X is a
linearly independent set, and suppose {w⃗1,w⃗2,w⃗3} ⊂ X is a
linearly dependent set. Define V = span{⃗v1,⃗v2,⃗v3} and W =
span{w⃗1,w⃗2,w⃗3}.
(a) Is there a linear transformation P : V → W such that P(⃗vi)
= w⃗i for i = 1, 2, 3?
(b) Is there a linear transformation Q : W → V such that Q(w⃗i)
= ⃗vi for i = 1, 2, 3?

Suppose v1, v2, . . . , vn is linearly independent in V and w ∈
V . Show that v1, v2, . . . , vn, w is linearly independent if and
only if w ∈/ Span(v1, v2, . . . , vn).

Let the set of vectors {v1, ...vk, ...
,vn} are basis for subspace V in Rn.
Are the vectors v1 , .... , vk are
linearly independent too?

† Let β={v1,v2,…,vn} be a basis for a vector space V
and T:V→V be a linear transformation. Prove that [T]β is upper
triangular if and only if T(vj)∈span({v1,v2,…,vj}) j=1,2,…,n. Visit

1. Prove that if {⃗v1, ⃗v2, ⃗v3} is a linear dependent set of
vectors in V , and if ⃗v4 ∈ V , then {⃗v1, ⃗v2, ⃗v3, ⃗v4} is
also a linear dependent set of vectors in V .
2. Prove that if {⃗v1,⃗v2,...,⃗vr} is a linear dependent set of
vectors in V, and if⃗ vr + 1 ,⃗vr+2,...,⃗vn ∈V, then
{⃗v1,⃗v2,...,⃗vn} is also a linear dependent set of vectors in
V.

Problem 6.4 What does it mean to say that a set of vectors {v1,
v2, . . . , vn} is linearly dependent? Given the following vectors
show that {v1, v2, v3, v4} is linearly dependent. Is it possible to
express v4 as a linear combination of the other vectors? If so, do
this. If not, explain why not. What about the vector v3? Anthony,
