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

So I'm trying to find a basis for the space that is spanned by the given vectors.

{(1,0,0,1) (-2,1,-1,1) (6,-1,2,-1) (5,-3,3,-4) (0,3,-1,1)} These are written as column vectors.

2. Relevant equations

None really (that I know of)

3. The attempt at a solution

So I think I need to check to see if any of these vectors are linear combinations of the others and then remove those vectors. I'm kinda confused by the whole Basis idea maybe if someone can explain that it will help me understand where I need to be headed with this problem.
