## Homework Statement

Is the collection a subspace of the given vector space? If so what is the dimension?

V={ax^2+bx+c: a=b+c} in P2

## Homework Equations

## The Attempt at a Solution

The first part of the question is pretty straightforward. I just verified closure under addition and scalar multiplication to show that V is indeed a subspace of P2. But I am confused about the second part. I know that the dimension of P2 is 3, so dimV must be < or = 3. I want to say three, but that would mean that V=P2, and I'm not sure that that's true. Any ideas?
