    Linear Algebra Question

    Find an example:
    Four vectors in R^3 (Euclidean Space) Such that no vector is a nontrivial linear combination of the other 3.

    This has me stumped. Since there are more vectors than n, wouldn't that mean at least 1 of the vectors are linearly dependent and thus a nontrivial combination of the other 3?
