Hi everyone, I have the set {(0,1,1),(1,0,1)(-1,1,0)} is this a linearly independent or dependent set? After playing about with it I think it is dependent as I cannot get it equal to zero. However, I might be wrong

Calculate the determinant with rows equal to vectors. If = 0, dependent, otherwise independent
