10. Let A be a particular vector in R^2x2. Determine whether the following are subspaces of R^2x2:
(a) S_1={B∈R^2x2│BA=0}
To show that a given subset of R^2x2 is a subspace, it suffices to show that it is closed with respect to addition and scalar multiplication. Let B1 and B2 belong to S_1. Then we have B1A=B2A=0, whence ...
