Hello... im doing this problem with basis. Infact, im having a lot of problems understanding basis, i did every question in the text book and I still get seem to understand the idea of it.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

So i was hoping somebody can help me with the whole idea about it.

Say, for example, how would i go abouts a question like this:

--Let F be a field and let V = F^3. Let

W = {(a1 a2 a3) E F^3 / 2a1 - a2 - a3 = 0 }

Find a basis for W --

If a question like that came on a test, id fail it - sad to say. It would also be good if somebody knows a good website or has sameple tests that covers this mataril so that i may get used to it.

Thanks
