# Thread: Linear Algebra, meaning of R^m

1. ## Linear Algebra, meaning of R^m

The problem states: "Suppose that {v1,v2,v3} is a linearly independent subset of Rm."

What does Rm in this case mean?

2. ## Re: Linear Algebra, meaning of R^m

$R^m$ denotes a real coordinate space of m dimensions.

Note: The original problem as you've written isn't complete in the case you also wanted a hint on it.
