I have these questions on my studyguide and I know both of them are false. I just don't have a good counterexample or a good explaintion to prove so.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

1) two subsets of a vector space V that span the same subspace of V are equal.

False: They don't have to be equal

2) The union of any 2 subspaces of a vector space V is a subspace of V.

False: Adding two subspaces doesn't necessary mean they will stay inside the vector space
