Let not all equal to zero and

Find a subspace Y such that and deduce X is 2 dimensional.

I am lost on this one.

Note:

is the external direct sum define as

If , then can be define as that is the internal direct sum

It should be obvious that this is a plane and that the vector is perpendicular to the plane.

Y is the subspace spanned by . That is the space of all vectors of the form where can be any real number.
