Show that vectors v1, v2, and v3 span R3.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

V_{1}=(1,0,0)

V_{2}=(2,2,0)

V_{3}=(3,3,3)

I'm pretty sure I'm doing this wrong?

a(V_{1}) +b(V_{2}) +c(V_{3}) = [x,y,z]

for (a= 0, b = 0, c = 1/3)

[0,0,0] +[0,0,0] +[1,1,1] = [x,y,z]

[1,1,1] = [x,y,z]
