    2. Use Theorem 5.2.1 to determine which of the following are subspaces of M22.

    Thm 5.2.1: If W is a set of one or more vectors from a vector space V, then W is a subspace of V if and only if the following conditions hold.
    (a) If u and v are vectors in W, then u + v is in W.
    (b) If k is any scalar and u is any vector in W, then ku is in W.

    a) all 2 x 2 matrices with integer entries
    b) all matrices a b where a + b + c + d = 0
    c d

    c) all 2 x 2 matrices A such that det(A) = 0
    d) all matrices of the form a b
    0 c

    e) all matrices of the form a a
    -a -a

    18. Prove Theorem 5.2.4.

    Thm 5.2.4: If S = {v1, v2, ..., vr}and S' = {w1, w2, ..., wk} are two sets of vectors in a vector space V, then

    span{v1, v2, ..., vr}= span{w1, w2, ..., wk}

    if and only if each vector in S is a linear combination of those in S' and each vector in S' is a linear combination of those in S.

    22. Show that the set of continuous functions f = f(x) on [a, b] such that

    The intergral from a to b f(x)dx = 0

    is a subspace of C[a, b].
