are 6, 3*(sinx)^2 and 2*(cosx)^2 - linearly independent ?
Can someone explain how to determine it ?

Linearly dependent vector sets are a collection of vectors in a vector space where at least one of the vectors can be expressed as a linear combination of the other vectors.
To determine if a set of vectors is linearly dependent, you can use the linear dependence test. This involves setting up a system of equations with the vectors as variables, and solving for the coefficients. If there are infinitely many solutions, the vectors are linearly dependent. If there is a unique solution, the vectors are linearly independent.
Understanding linearly dependent vector sets is important because it helps us to determine if a set of vectors can span a vector space. If a set of vectors is linearly dependent, it means that some of the vectors are redundant and do not contribute to the span of the vector space. This can help us to simplify calculations and solve problems more efficiently.
Yes, a set of only two vectors can be linearly dependent. For example, if one vector is a multiple of the other, then they are linearly dependent. In general, if a set of vectors has more vectors than the dimension of the vector space, it is highly likely that the set is linearly dependent.
Linearly dependent vector sets are used in a variety of real-world applications, such as computer graphics, engineering, and physics. For example, in computer graphics, linearly dependent vector sets can be used to represent transformations of objects in a 3D space. In engineering, they can be used to model systems and analyze their behavior. In physics, they can be used to represent forces acting on an object and determine its motion.
