# Linear Algebra : Vector Spaces and Inner Products

Not what you're looking for?

1) Let { 1, 2, 2........... n} be a basis of an n dimensional vector space over R and A be n Matrix .
Let ( 1, 2, 3............... s) = ( 1, 2, 2........... n) A
Prove that dim (span { 1, 2, 3............... s}) = Rank (A).

2) Let V1 be the solution space of x1 +x2 + x3............+xn = 0
let V2 be the solution space of x1 =x2 = x3............=xn.
Prove that R^n (R to the power n) = V1+V2

3) Prove that for any (R^n)' then exists a unique vector R^n such that
= x for all ( 1, 2, ......... n) R^n
where x is the inner product of R^n.

Let ( 1, 2, 3............... s) = ( 1, 2, 3........... n) A
Prove that dim (span { 1, 2, 3............... s}) = Rank (A).

Proof: Let B = ( 1, 2, 3............... s)
and X= ( 1, 3, 2........... n) . We know X is of full rank(i.e., rank(X)=n), as all the columns of X are ...
