Thanks, and sorry =|

This fall I am taking my first proof based class (set theory), and this spring have the option of taking a number theory class or a proof based linear algebra class (i am taking an applied LA class this semester, and also, I am MUCH more interested in applied math than pure math)

I would personally rather take linear algebra, but one of my engineering classes conflicts, and would be a haste to work around.

I will be taking undergrad real analysis NEXT fall, and was hoping to find out which of these two would be more helpful for real analysis.

I think that the proofs for linear algebra will likely be more difficult (and the content more abstract). So, in terms of developing mathematical maturity, I think LA wins the chicken..

However, I was wondering, in terms of content overlap and helpful knowledge, which is more likely to prove useful for an intro real analysis class?

thanks in advance.
