1. Homework Statement
A) let T_k be all polynomials with degree 3 or under such that k is their coefficients sum.
so we can say that exist at least 2 values of k for them T_k is the sub vector space of P_3(x)?
B) this question is about direct sum: Let [tex]V_1,V_2,V_3[/tex] be subvector spaces of V if [tex]V_1 \cap V_2={0}[/tex] and [tex]V_1 \cap V_3={0}[/tex] than [tex]V_1 \cap (V_2+V_3)={0}[/tex]


Homework Equations



A) is this true??? am i right? look under for my answer

The Attempt at a Solution



A)i think this statment is false for example for k=2,4 we have T_k polynomials but T_k is not close under scalar multipication....is this right?

B)i infact dont think the statement is true but i couldnt find an exaple to support it

For A), k=2 or 4 don't work, you are right. But what if k=0? For B), yes, it's false. Take the space of linear polynomials P_1(x). Let V1 be all multiples of (1+x), V2 be all multiples of 1 and V3 be all multiples of x.
