Are the following vector subspaces?? $\displaystyle X= (x \in Q^4: x_1+x_2-x_3-x_4=x_1+x_4=0)$ and $\displaystyle X=(x\in Q^4: x_1^2+x_2^2-x_3^2-x_4^2=0) $ I don't think the second one is (under addition x+y) but i'm not sure

Let's see some reasoning?
hi! I thought if we take $\displaystyle Y\in Q^4... $ then $\displaystyle (x_1+y_1)^2 $is not the same as $\displaystyle x_1^2+y_1^2$ etc...
