i have a question im trying to work but im not sure how to do it. i'm given 4 dirrerent answers to choose from (i wont post them because i want to try them myself)(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Only one of the following 4 sets of vectors forms a basis of R3.

Explain which one is, and why, and explain why each of the other sets do not form a

basis.

S = {(1,1,1), (-2,1,1), (-1,2,2)}

This one is not because it cannot be expressed as a linear combination right??
