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

Let S be a basis for an n-dimensional vector space V. Show that if v1,v2,...,vr form a linearly independent set of the vectors in V, then the coordinate vectors (v1)s, (v2)s,...,(vr)s form a linearly independent set in the Rn, and conversely.

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

I tried working this problem but i got stuck almost at the end. i know that to show that the coordinate vectors form a linearly independent set that the following equation

k1((v1)s)+ k2((v2)s) +...+ kr((v)s)=0 has to have only the trivial solution. Could i please get some help. I wrote v1, v2,..vn as a linear combination of the set S which i defined as S={w1,w2,...,wn}. Help please.
