x1 = 1 1 1 1 and x2 = 1 -1 1 -1 Question: How can we change the set {x1,x2} into an orthonormal set? Demonstrate. Any help would be great!! Thanks

Since the vectors are already orthoganal, all you do is 'normalize them. Ie divided each vector by its norm. For example, if x=(1,1,1,1) (transpose...), then the new vector is (1/||x||)x=(1/√(4))x=(1/2)x= (1/2,1/2,1/2,1/2). You do the other one.
