## The Set $ \{ a + b \cos(x) + c \cos(2x) \mid a, b, c \in \mathbb{R} \}$ is a Subspace in $C(\R)$

## Problem 661

Let $C(\mathbb{R})$ be the vector space of real-valued functions on $\mathbb{R}$.

Consider the set of functions $W = \{ f(x) = a + b \cos(x) + c \cos(2x) \mid a, b, c \in \mathbb{R} \}$.

Prove that $W$ is a vector subspace of $C(\mathbb{R})$.
