given the vectors,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

v_{1},v_{2}......v_{k+1}.

show that if v_{1},v_{2}......v_{k+1}. are dependant then v_{1},v_{2}......v_{k+1}are definitely dependant.

can i say that in a series of dependant vectors, at least one must be a linear combination of the others therefore, if v_{1},v_{2}......v_{k+1}are dependant, v_{1},v_{2}......v_{k+1}must be since it contains the vector which was a linear combination (from the larger series)
