Linear Combination
Definition
A vector w V is called a linear combination of vectors
v1 , v2 , . . . , vr if it can be written as
w=

r
X

ki vi .

i=1

## where ki are scalars.

Definition
Let vi = (ai,1 , ai,2 , , ai,n ) where ai,j are reals for i = 1, 2, , m
and jP= 1, 2, , n. Then
x = m
i = (b1 a1,1 + + bm am,1 , , b1 a1,n + + bm am,n )
i=1 bi v
is called a linear combination of the vectors v1 , v2 , , vm where
bk s are also real numbers.

Examples

Example
Let u = (1, 2, 1) &v = (6, 4, 2) R. Check whether
w1 = (9, 2, 7) is a linear combination of the vectors u and v.
Example
Is x = (4, 1, 8) a linear combination of the vectors u and v?

Remark
If the linear system is consistent then a given vector can be written
as a linear combination of others vectors. If the linear system is
not consistent then the given vector can not be written as a linear
combination of other vectors.

So we
have
seen
that
w
=
i=1 ki vi for some vector w V and
Pr
x 6= i=1 ki vi for some vector x V .

Subspaces

## Now, it is time to recall the following tests for subspace.

Theorem
A subset W of a vector space V is a subspace iff W is closed
under vector addition and scalar multiplication.
Theorem
Let W be a subspace of a vector space V . Then for a1 an R3
and w

Theorem
If v1 , v2 , . . . , vr are vectors in a vector space V then
The set W of all linear combination v1 , v2 , . . . , vr is a
subspace of V .
W is the smallest subspace of V that contains v1 , v2 , . . . , vr .

Span
Definition
Let S be a nonempty subset of a vector space V . Then the span
of S in V is the set of all possible finite linear combination of
vectors of S and is denoted by span(S).
Now, we will look into the following theorem.
Theorem
Let S be a nonempty subset of a vector space V . Then
1 S span(S).
2 Span(S) is a subspace of V .
3 If W is any subspace of V with S W , then span(S) W .
4 Span(S) is the smallest subspace of V containing S.

## Color magazines and books are printed using this model,

where C, M, Y, K are some colors.
Colors can be created either by mixing inks of the four types
and printing with these mixed inks, which is known as The
Spot Color Method.
By printing dot patterns(Rosettes) with four colors and
allowing the readers eye and perception process to created
the desired color combinations (Process Color Method).
There is a numbering system for commercial links called The
Pantone Matching Systems.

## Assigns every commercial ink color a number in according

with its percentage of C,M,Y, K.
Describing the ink color as a linear combination of these using
coefficients between 0 and 1 inclusive.
The set of all such linear combinations is called CMYK-Space.
For example 876CVC is a mixture of C, M, Y, K in the
P876 = (0.38, 0.59, 0.73, 0.07).

Linear Independence/Dependence

Definition
Let S = {v1 , v2 , , vn } be a finite subset
P of a vector space V .
Then S is called linearly independent iff ni=1 ai vi = 0 has a trivial
solutions, i.e., all ai are simultaneously zero.
Definition
Let S = {v1 , v2 , , vn } be a finite subset
Pn of a vector space V .
Then S is called linearly dependent iff i=1 ai vi = 0 has a
nontrivial solutions, i.e., at least one of the ai is nonzero.
