(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

"if u,v,w are linearly independent then au+bv+cw=0 for some a,b,c in R"

first of all is this correct?

and how do i proof if this is correct?

should i show like this,

i know 0u+0v+0w=0

so that imply that statement is true?

because 0 is in R

is this correct? to prove "for some" statement?
