Hi,

Could someone explain to me why the set of all elements of R^3 with the first component of 1 is not a real vector space? I'm lost on this one. Thanks,

Kim

Consider vectors: and .

One of the axioms state that if u and v are vectors in your vector space, then so should u + v. However:

which does not belong in your vector space.
