Homework Help: Linear Algebra- Vector Spaces

  1. Oct 3, 2008 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Let V = {(a1,a2,...an): ai [tex]\in[/tex] C for i = 1,2,...n}; Is V a vector space over the field of real numbers with the operations of coordinatewise addition and multiplication?

    2. Relevant equations
    I know that V is a vector space over C.

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I actually don't really understand the problem, especially what it means by vector space over the field of real numbers. Any suggestions would be great. Thanks.
