With these new definitions, is R3 a vector space? a) (x1, y1, z1)+(x2, y2, z2)=(x1 + x2 + 2, y1 + y2 + 2, z1 + z2 + 2) c(x, y, z)=(cx, cy, cz) b) (x1, y1, z1)+(x2, y2, z2)=(x1 + x2 + 4, y1 + y2 + 4, z1 + z2 + 4) c(x, y, z)=(cx + 4c � 4, cy + 4c � 4, cz + 4c � 4) Thanks!

So R^3 with thos operation can not form a vectorspace. November 21st, 2011, 07:47 AM #3 Newbie   Joined: Nov 2011 Posts: 2 Thanks: 0 Re: Vector spaces Thanks!

With these new definitions, is R2 a vector space? (x1, y1) + (x2, y2) = (x1, 0) and c(x, y) = (cx, cy) If the answer is no, can you list all axioms that fail.(I know there are 10 axioms) Thanks you so much for your help January 30th, 2014, 06:41 AM #5 Math Team   Joined: Sep 2007 Posts: 2,409 Thanks: 6 Re: Vector spaces You know there are 10 axioms? Do you know what those axioms are? Can you not, yourself, check to see which of those axioms are true?

Tags spaces, vector (x1,y1,z1) (x2,y2,z2)=(x1-x2, y1-y2, z1-z2)
