Is a vector in a vectorspace its own projection onto that vectorspace?

    If V is a vectorspace and v is a vector in V. will the projection of v onto V be v?

    Hi NoOne0507! :wink:

    If you mean "if V is a subspace of vectorspace W and v is a vector in V will the projection of v onto V be v?", the answer is, yes. :smile:
