Subspaces Questions Help Please!!
Hi I have an assignment due Monday morning and there are a few questions I am not sure about or if I proved them properly:
Ok so for 2b) I said that it is not a subspace because f(x)=7 when x=0, and this function never equals zero, and since this is included in the vector space the subset is not a subspace.
For 2c) I wrote it clearly has the zero vector because f(7)=0. and (f+g)(x)=f(x)+g(x), and so the subset is closed under addition, and that (Kf)(x)=k(f(x)), so it is closed under scalar multiplication and thus the subset is a subspace.
For the third question,I wrote it is closed under scalar multiplication because AKV1=AKV2 (K is a scalar), and i wrote that A(V1+V2)=AV1+AV2=BV1+BV2 and is thus closed under addition and so the subset is a subspace. (and I wrote it clearly has the zero vector).
For the fourth one I wrote that the subset is not a subspace because it is not closed under scalar multiplication because you can multiply it by i and then you get complex numbers.
Please help, it is very appreciated :)
