Linear algebra maple problem

say I have a set of basis vectors of a vector space v1, v2.....vn and some element of the vector space, say V

What command do I use in maple to calculate the coordinates of V in this basis? I can't find one in the linalg package

I don't know the commands in maple (this is something I'd usually do in matlab or octave) but the problem is just one of matrix inverse. If you make a matrix M, with columns comprising the basis vectors, then the basis cordinates of V are simply inv(M)V

Thanks, yeah it dawned on me sorted it. Forgot my elementary linear algebra.

Thank for your reply.
