well, thanks but...what about the rest?:)

Y = [2 1 -1 1] - [1 -2 1 -1]

Writing Y with respect to this basis is (-1,1)

so (-1,1) Z = 0

so Z can be span{(1,1)}

so Z can be span {(3,-1,0,0)} - December 12th 2007, 03:26 AMakhayoon
:confused::confused:

so you're proving that Z is orthogonal using the dot product? - December 12th 2007, 03:29 AMbadgerigar
I think you need to revise the definition of orthogonal.
