I have a question about Gram Schmidt Orthonormalization. I know you can orthogonalize then normalize.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

My question is can you (multipy/divide) the given vectors by a scalar to give new vectors, then orthogonalize(by taking projection), then normalize the result?

would the result still span the space of the orgional vectors?
