I'm a little confused on exactly what spanning is. For example, It's not possible for a set of five vectors to span M(2, 3), but it is possible for a set of six vectors or seven vectors. Why is this? I understand the dimension of M(2,3)=6. I just need a little bit more information on what spanning is.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
