(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Let S be the form of (a, b,c ,d )in R4, givenanot equal to 0. Find the basis that is subset of S.

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

I got a(1,0,0,0), b(0,1,0,0), c(0,0,1,0), d(0,0,0,1) as basis. a not = 0

But i wasn't sure what the significances ofanot = to 0 means

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.
