I am having serious trouble trying to figure out this whole, "being closed under addition and scalar multiplication" Our example is Let W={[a,b,c]:a+b=4c;b=2c} I need to figure out if it is closed under addition and scalar multiplication, I am not sure how to do this though.. do I just add a+b=4c and b=2c together? If you could help explain this to me, I'll greatly appreciate it! Thank you!
