Are these sets subspaces of a vectorspace?
I have three sets and I should proof as they are subspaces of a vectorspace.
I write down the task and than I write my ideas and problems.
Let k be a field, V a k-vectorspace and U,W subspaces of V. Are this sets subspaces of V?
Okay to the first set. I think I have to show three things for every set which are valid if we have a subvectorspace.
Okay, first I have to show that the set is not empty. This means there must exist minimum one element which is not the empty set itself. Well:
Is this one line enough? If it is not, how to complete the argument that the first set is not empty?
Another idea was that A vectorspace has a abelian group which have a neutral element and if I found here a neutral element I have shown it but the neutral element of addition is here the empty set and I am not allowd to use it or?
thanks for help
