So, I know that for a set of vectors to be a basis the set of vectors must be linearly independent and also must be a spanning set of vectors. So, they can't be parallel. I still feel that I'm not fully understanding what a basis is. Could someone explain to me, maybe with an example, what is a basis? Thanks.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
