Linearly independent question

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 )}

Re: Linearly independent question

How do you show that vectors are linearly independent?

Re: Linearly independent question

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.
