I HAVE searched the threads before posting this but I didn't find the same question.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Anyway, the question is T-F:

A subset of linearly dependent set is linearly dependent.

I think it is F, because for non-zero linearly dep. set a proof can be constructed so that some matrices can have non-zero coefficient while the other matrices -- a zero coefficient.

But among those that have a zero coeff. (or if a subset is defined as some elements of zero-coeff. subset and non-zero-coeff.) there may not be a linear dependence necessarily.

Is my proof/reasoning correct?

Thanks in advance.
