(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Well it isn't so much the problem as it is the notation used within the problem. But here is the question:

Determine whether or not [itex]\overline{w}[/itex] and [itex]\overline{v}[/itex] are linearly independent in R^{4}/U

2. Relevant equations

If v [itex]\in[/itex] V then [itex]\overline{v}[/itex] = v + U

3. The attempt at a solution

I don't understand the notation R^{4}/U (I understand R^{4}and the subspace U, but don't understand the slash between them)
