Linear independence - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
I have a question for the following example that i read from a book which is:-
Show that the functions are linearly dependent on any interval.
and the solution for the example from the book
Solution. . (I didn't understand this??)
This prove linear dependence on any interval.
p/s: Can anybody help me with this. I know the Wronskian and the quotient thing but i didn't understand at all about this example. I get this example from ADVANCE ENGINEERING MATHEMATIC, Kreyzsig, 9th edition, chapter 3.1, example 1
