Let H and K be subspaces of a vector space V. Prove that the intersection K and H is a subspace of V.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Intuitively I can see that this is true... Both H and K must be closed under vector addition and scalar multiplication so there intersection must also be closed under both those.

How do i prove this mathematically. And is what I've even said correct?

Thanks :-D
