If anyone could explain how the following linear algebra problem is done, it would be greatly appreciated as I am studying for a test!
Here is a vector space candidate. We have as our set R^2, as our vector addition x oplus y = (x_1, x_2) oplus (y_1, y_2) = (x_1 y_2, x_2 y_2), and as our scalar multiplication a cdot x = a cdot (x_1, x_2) = (a + x_1, a + x_2).
Verify the following vector space axiom:
There exists an element 0 such that for any x in the proposed vector space, x oplus 0 = x = 0 oplus x.
