    Vectors : Linear Independence

    This content was COPIED from BrainMass.com - View the original, and get the already-completed solution here!

    Let A = [ -5, 6, -19] B= [-1, 2, -3] and C= [-2, 2, -8]

    **they are linearly independent***

    The problem is the same as if the vectors were written vertically.
    If they are linearly dependent, determine a non-trivial linear relation - (a non-trivial relation is three numbers which are not all three zero.) otherwise, if the vectors are linearly independent, enter 0's for the coefficients, since that relationship always holds.

    Determine non-trivial linear relation:
    ___ A + ___ B + ___C = 0
