## Which sets are subspaces of R3?

A subset of R3 is a subspace **if it is closed under addition and scalar multiplication**. Besides, a subspace must not be empty. The set S1 is the union of three planes x = 0, y = 0, and z = 0. It is not closed under addition as the following example shows: (1,1,0) + (0,0,1) = (1,1,1).

**How do you know if a set is subspaces of R3?**

In other words, to test if a set is a subspace of a Vector Space, you only need to **check if it closed under addition and scalar multiplication**. Easy! ex. Test whether or not the plane 2x + 4y + 3z = 0 is a subspace of R3.

**Which of the following subsets of R 3 are actually subspaces?**

Which of the following subsets of R3 are actually subspaces? Solution : The only subspaces are (a) **the plane with b1 = b2** (d) the linear combinations of v and w (e) the plane with b1 + b2 + b3 = 0. Solution : The column space of A is the line of vectors (x, 2x, 0).

**Which of the following is not subspace of R3?**

The plane **z = 1** is not a subspace of R3. The line t(1,1,0), t ∈ R is a subspace of R3 and a subspace of the plane z = 0. The line (1,1,1) + t(1,−1,0), t ∈ R is not a subspace of R3 as it lies in the plane x + y + z = 3, which does not contain 0. Any solution (x1,x2,...,xn) is an element of Rn.

**Which of the following is a vector subspace of R3?**

Hence **E2** is a subspace of R3.

**What is a basis for R3?**

A basis of R3 **cannot have more than 3 vectors**, because any set of 4 or more vectors in R3 is linearly dependent. A basis of R3 cannot have less than 3 vectors, because 2 vectors span at most a plane (challenge: can you think of an argument that is more “rigorous”?).

**Is the set of vectors of the form a subspace of R3?**

No. It is not closed under scalar multiplication either because the form completely changed specifically the y component of the vector completely changed. Since it is not closed under addition and scalar multiplication, I can say **it is not a subspace of R3**.

**Is R2 a subspace of R3?**

However, **R2 is not a subspace of R3**, since the elements of R2 have exactly two entries, while the elements of R3 have exactly three entries.

**How do you prove a set is a subspace?**

**To show a subset is a subspace, you need to show three things:**

- Show it is closed under addition.
- Show it is closed under scalar multiplication.
- Show that the vector 0 is in the subset.

**Which of the following vectors span R3?**

**Any set of vectors in R3 which contains three non coplanar vectors** will span R3.

## Which of the following are subspaces of R2?

(a) The subspaces of R2 are **10l, lines through origin, R2**. (b) The subspaces of R3 are 10l, lines through origin, planes through origin, R3. Proof.

**Is WA subspace of R3?**

If (a, b, c) ∈ W and k ∈ R, we have a = 3b and so ka = 3(kb). Thus k(a, b, c) ∈ W. Therefore by Theorem 4.2 **W is a subspace of R3**.

**Which of the following sets of vectors in R3 are linearly independent?**

Therefore **v1,v2,v3** are linearly independent. Four vectors in R3 are always linearly dependent. Thus v1,v2,v3,v4 are linearly dependent.

**How do you define a subspace?**

A subspace is a vector space that is contained within another vector space. So every subspace is a vector space in its own right, but it is also defined relative to some other (larger) vector space.

**What is the dimension of zero vector?**

The dimension of the zero vector space **{0}** is defined to be 0. If V is not spanned by a finite set, then V is said to be infinite-dimensional.

**Is a 0 0 a subspace of R3?**

Answers and Replies

You are correct. The set of all (a,b,0) is a vector subspace of R3. In fact, it is exactly the xy-plane R2 as visualized in R3. Likewise the set of all (a,0,0) is simply the x-axis as visualized in R3.

**How do you find the subspace of a vector space?**

**check only a few of the conditions of a vector space**.

...

**Then U is a subspace of V if and only if the following three conditions hold.**

- additive identity: 0∈U;
- closure under addition: u,v∈U⇒u+v∈U;
- closure under scalar multiplication: a∈F, u∈U⟹au∈U.

**What is R3 in matrix?**

If three mutually perpendicular copies of the real line intersect at their origins, any point in the resulting space is specified by an ordered triple of real numbers (x _{1}, x _{2}, x _{3}). The set of all ordered triples of real numbers is called **3‐space**, denoted R ^{3} (“R three”).

**Which of the following is not a basis for R 3?**

Thus, the general solution is x1=x3, x2=−2x3, where x3 is a free variable. Hence, in particular, there is a nonzero solution. So S is linearly dependent, and hence **S cannot be a basis for R3**.

**Is the set v1 v2 v3 a basis for R3?**

Therefore **{v1,v2,v3} is a basis for R3**. Vectors v1,v2,v3,v4 span R3 (because v1,v2,v3 already span R3), but they are linearly dependent.

**Can two vectors span r3?**

**No.** **Two vectors cannot span R3**.

**Which subsets are subspaces?**

A subset W of a vector space V is a subspace **if (1) W is non-empty** (2) For every ¯v, ¯w ∈ W and a, b ∈ F, a¯v + b ¯w ∈ W. are called linear combinations. So a non-empty subset of V is a subspace if it is closed under linear combinations.

The definition of a subspace is **a subset S of some Rn such that whenever u and v are vectors in S, so is αu + βv for any two scalars (numbers) α and β**.

**Which of the following sets is a subspace of R2?**

Any subset of R ^{n} that satisfies these two properties—with the usual operations of addition and scalar multiplication—is called a subspace of R^{n} or a Euclidean vector space. The set **V = {(x, 3 x): x ∈ R}** is a Euclidean vector space, a subspace of R^{2}.

## Is the set of vectors of the form a subspace of R3?

No. It is not closed under scalar multiplication either because the form completely changed specifically the y component of the vector completely changed. Since it is not closed under addition and scalar multiplication, I can say **it is not a subspace of R3**.
