I would really appreciate if anyone could help me with this problems.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

V is a vector space on R and v1, v2, v3 e V are linearly independant. If w1 = v1 + kv2, w2= v2 - 2kv3 and w3= v3 - 4kv, find k so w1, w2, w3 are linearly dependant.

I tried it and got k=0 and I think it's wrong
