find the dimension of the linear span of the given vectors

v1 = ( 2, -3, 1) v2 = ( 5, -8, 3) v3 = (-5, 9, -4)

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

so all i did was make it a matrix and put it in rref and i got

[1 0 0]

[0 1 0]

[0 0 1]

does this mean dimensions of the linear span = 3?
