if i am asked to find a basis for a vector subspace, am i meant to jus write one possible option, for example(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

basis: (8,0,0)(0,6,0)(0,0,2)

or am i supposed to write the whole span

basis: sp{(8,0,0)(0,6,0)(0,0,2)}

or am i meant to write it with parameters

basis: a(8,0,0) + b(0,6,0) + c(0,0,2)

or am i meant to write it in its simplist form

basis: (1,0,0)(0,1,0)(0,0,1)

and how about when i am asked to present all possible basises
