I’m not sure exactly how to determine conditions on the scalars so that the set of vectors is linearly dependent. Could you please walk me through the process? I tried it, but their answer was in a completely different form than I expected. Thanks!
I wrote a solution of a problem that is very similar to Section 1.7 #31. (A few numbers has been changed.)
The idea is the same so please read the solution. If you still have a question about the solution, please let me know.
