Linear Dependence & Linear Independence

Definition 4.1

IF

for every x in I

IF not then we say linearly independent

Note:Linear Combination

Is this set linearly dependent ??

Linear Dependence & Linear Independence

Definition 4.1

IF

for every x in I

IF not then we say linearly independent

Is this set linearly dependent ??

Linear Dependence & Linear Independence

Definition 4.1

IF

for every x in I

IF not then we say linearly independent

Special case

If a set of two functions is lin. Dep, then one function is simply a constant multiple of the other.

Is this set linearly dependent ??
