Span of vectors

  1. Nov 6, 2009 #1
    I am having some trouble with this problem...

    Let W be the set of all vectors of the form:

    (-5b-4c
    b
    c)

    ^ (that is supposed to be in vector form)

    Find vectors u and v such that W = Span {u,v}.

    Hint:
    x=-5b-4c
    y=1b+0c
    z=0b+1c
