(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Given the vectors: x1=(3,-2,4), x2=(-3,2,-4) and x3=(-6,4,-8) , what is the dimension of Span(x1,x2,x3)

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

I know x1,x2 and x3 are Linearly dependent since its determinant is zero. There are a total of 3 vectors in the spanning set. I thought the number of dimensions would be 3. But my the back of my book says the number of dimensions is one.
