So I'm to show that the non-zero vector w={v e V|<v,x> = 0} for all x in V that dim(w)=dim(V)-1.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

It recommends using the Gram-Schmidt process to prove this but I tried to work it out and I couldn't make any sense of it. Any suggestions on how to start this out?

[edit]: nevermind, I got it. If you were curious, start by saying x is an element of the set S that is linearly independent and spans V. Then do G-S on V and you find that you lose an element of the set, so there you have it.
