We consider the scalars a, b, c and d and multiply them by each matrix respectively and put it equal to a zero matrix. Then if it turns out that a=b=c=d=0 we can claim these matrices are linearly independent in the 2*2 ...

#### Solution Summary

Matrices are used to prove linear dependence. Matrix functions are analyzed.
