    [SOLVED] Linear Algebra Problem

    Can someone help me how to prove that V= R is not a vector space with respect to the operations:

    (a, b) + (c, d) = (a, b) and k(a,b) = (ka, kb)


    appreciate your help

    thanks

    Have you correctly copied this problem?
    If you have, have you considered the commutive property of vector addition?
