Hi,

what is the best way to find the basis of subspace V(x,y,z,w) which is an element of R^4 for 2x-y=z-3w

Hey n22.

Try constructing a matrix and row-reduce the matrix to find the number of free parameters. Then take that and construct a basis using the free parameters. - June 12th 2013, 10:09 PMn22Re: basis
hello,

in this case are there 3 parameters?

you cant really row reduce ..so what now?please specify.thanks. - June 13th 2013, 06:40 AMHallsofIvyRe: basis
