Hey everyone I just had a quick thought that was bothering me. For a set to be a basis it must be linearly independent and span the vector space. I've seen cases however of only two vectors forming a basis for R(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); ^{4}I don't see how two vectors could span 4 space or am I missing something.

Thanks!
