u and v are contained in V(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Lets say the scalar multiplication is defined as:

ex.

ku=k^2 u or ku = (0,ku2) u=(u1,u2)

does this mean that this is also the same for different scalar m?

mu=m^2 u or mu = (0,mu2) u=(u1,u2)

and does this mean the same for any vector v

kv=k^2 v or kv = (0,kv2) v=(v1,v2)

Is this correct?

Axioms 7,8,9 contain the 2 different scalars as well as vectors. it really confuses me.

Can someone please put me on the right track :s
