Hi,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I don't know how to do the following proof:

If (v1, ...vn) are linearly independent in V, then so is the list (v1-v2, v2-v3, ...vn-1 -vn, vn).

I can do the proof if I replace 'linearly independent' with 'spans V' ...so what connection am I missing?

Thanks much!
