##### Solution Summary

The geometric interpretation of subspaces on planes are found. The expert finds an equation of subspaces using real numbers.

##### Solution Preview

The set V = {(a+b, -a, 2b): a, b are real numbers} is closed with respect to addition and multiplication by scalar since:

(1) (a+b, -a, 2b) + (c+d, -c, 2d) = (a+c+b+d, -(a+c), 2(b+d))
