The question requires me to check whether the following formulae satisfy the properties of an inner product given the linear space of all real polynomials.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

[tex]

f(1)g(1)[/tex]

[tex]\left(\int_{0}^{1}f(t)dt\right)\left(\int_{0}^{1}g(t)dt\right)[/tex]

The properties are satisfied in both cases (at least, that's my answer), but the book says 'No'. How could this be?
