## Homework Statement

Let S be a linearly independent subset of a Hilbert space. Prove that span(S) is a subspace, that is a linear manifold and a closed set, if and only if S is finite.

## Homework Equations

## The Attempt at a Solution

Assuming S is finite means that S is a closed set (a finite subset of a metric space is closed). I think that this will help to prove span(S) is a closed set but I am a bit stuck.
