just a quick one:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Show that the vectorsa=2i-2j,b=3j-kandc=i+ 2j+kare linearly independant

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

What does 'linearly independent' mean and whats the test for it? Its from a really old exam paper so i might just know this theory under a different name.

thankyou
