You have 3 Vectors say v1,v2,v3 in R^4 meaning they each have 4 components. How do you determine if they are linearly dependent or independent? And usually how do you denote 4 components? I know everyone knows how to denote three components which is just x,y,z but idk what to call the 4th one. The question is simple, can someone just give me a brief play by play on how to determine the dependence or independence? My book is not very much help and I even googled it.
