State, with reasons, whether or not these sets of vectors are linearly independent.? T = {(3, 5, 7), (4, 6, 8 ), (5, 7, 9)} U = {(2, 0, 2), (7, 8, 1), (8, 0, 8 )}

A way to do it is calculate det and det where and . If the determinant is 0 then the vector are not linear independent if it is not 0 then they are.
