1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Hello, I'm having a little difficulty with this proof. Prove: If V is a complex vector space, then V is also a real vector space. 2. Relevant equations Definition 1: A vector space V is called a real vector space if the scalars are real numbers. Definition 2: A vector space V is called a complex vector space if the scalars are complex numbers. 3. The attempt at a solution I've tried a proof by contradiction saying that "V is a complex vector space and V is not a real vector space." Can't seem to find any sort of contradiction throughout my argument though.
