A linear algebra proof

  1. Oct 19, 2007 #1
    Prove that if A is not square, then either the row vectors of A or column vectors of A form a linearly dependent set.

    can anyone help me out with this proof? I have no idead how to start.

    What is your definition of linearly dependent?

    If you have a set of n vectors with m components and n>m, can they be linearly independent?
