Then $\exists x \ni Bx =0$ so $FVx=0$ But $F$ is invertible so multiply both sides by $F^{-1}$ $F^{-1}F V x = 0$ $Vx = 0$ and thus the column vectors of $V$ are linearly dependent. but we are given they are linearly independent and thus we have a contradiction and it must be that the columns of $B$ are linearly independent. I'll let you think about (b), it's important Thanks from Peaya
