Let W be sub-space in dimension m of F^n (m < n). Show that there exist m - n homogeneous equations in n variables, so that- W={(x_1,...x_n) | a_11*x_1+...+a_1n*x_n=0,..., a_n-m*x_1+...+a_n-mn*x_n=0} (x_1,...x_n) is column vector.

Pick a basis for say and extend to a basis for say we add and take (giving the later a basis ) given by and . We then have and so picking a suitable matrix to represent this we get our equations.
