SupposeVis a vector space with operations+and*(under the usual operations) andW = {wis a subset of_{1}, w_{2}, ... , w_{n}}Vwith n vectors. Show Span{W} is a subspace ofV.

The attempt at a solution

I know that to show a set is a subspace, we need to show closure under addition and multiplication. I don't where to go from there. Any suggestions?
