in a space V^n, prove that the set of all vectors {v1,v2,..}, orthogonal to any v≠0, form a subspace V^(n-1).(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

i know that a subspace of V^n must be at least one dimension less and the set of vector v1,v2,... build a orthogonal basis, but how can one show with this preconditions that the subspace has to be of dimension (n-1)?
