My question is do I go about showing U1 as a subspace and U2 not as a subspace as one would do normally? Or are there special conditions we have to follow because we are dealing with F^n (n-tuples). I tried looking in my book and my book doesn't really show anything on it and I tried google but i can't seem to find what i'm looking for.

Thank you.
