Hello all(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I have read about quotient spaces of a vector space in several books and have an understanding of what they are.

Looking up Quotient Vector Space in Wiki it says :-

The quotient of a vector space V by a subspace N is a vector space obtained by "collapsing" N to zero.

I don't understand the collapsing to zero bit.

Thanks for any help Matheinste.
