Hi,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I'm reading Shilov's linear algebra and in part 2.44 he talks about linear independent vectors in a subspace L which is a subset of space K( he refers to it as K over L). I don't understand why he says that a linear combination of vectors of the subspace L and vectors of the subspace K over L is independent. Is it the same subspace or am I wrong? Shilov also says that the dimension of the subspace K over L n-l. Why?
