Step 1
Given data:
The given space vector is: \(\displaystyle{V}={\left\lbrace{v}-{u},{w}-{v},{u}-{w}\right\rbrace}\).
The expression to check whether the space vector is linearly dependent or independent is
\(\displaystyle{c}_{{{1}}}{\left({v}-{u}\right)}+{c}_{{{2}}}{\left({w}-{v}\right)}+{c}_{{{3}}}{\left({u}-{w}\right)}={\left({0},{0},{0}\right)}\)
Further, solve the above expression.
\(\displaystyle{c}_{{{1}}}{v}-{c}_{{{1}}}{u}+{c}_{{{2}}}{w}-{c}_{{{2}}}{v}+{c}_{{{3}}}{u}-{c}_{{{3}}}{w}={\left({0},{0},{0}\right)}\)
\(\displaystyle{\left({c}_{{{1}}}-{c}_{{{2}}}\right)}{v}-{\left({c}_{{{1}}}-{c}_{{{3}}}\right)}{u}+{\left({c}_{{{2}}}-{c}_{{{3}}}\right)}{w}={\left({0},{0},{0}\right)}\)
\(\displaystyle{c}_{{{1}}}-{c}_{{{2}}}={0}\)
\(\displaystyle{c}_{{{1}}}-{c}_{{{3}}}={0}\)
Step 2
The above equation gives the value of the scalar multiples.
\(\displaystyle{c}_{{{1}}}={c}_{{{2}}}={c}_{{{3}}}\)
As the \(\displaystyle{c}_{{{1}}},{c}_{{{2}}}\), and \(\displaystyle{c}_{{{3}}}\) are the scalar multiples of the given space vector, and they are equal, so the space vector is linearly dependent.
Thus, the given space vector is linearly dependent.

A sum of scalar multiple of two or more vectors (such as \(\displaystyle{c}_{{{1}}}{u}+{c}_{{{2}}}{v}+{c}_{{{3}}}{w}\), where \(\displaystyle{c}_{{{i}}}\) are scalars) is called a linear combination of the vectors. Let \(\displaystyle{i}={\left\langle{1},{0}\right\rangle},{j}={\left\langle{0},{1}\right\rangle},{u}={\left\langle{1},{1}\right\rangle}\), and \(\displaystyle{v}={\left\langle-{1},{1}\right\rangle}\).
Express \(\displaystyle{\left\langle{4},-{8}\right\rangle}\) as a linear combination of i and j (that is, find scalars \(\displaystyle{c}_{{{1}}}\) and \(\displaystyle{c}_{{{2}}}\) such that \(\displaystyle{\left\langle{4},-{8}\right\rangle}={c}_{{{1}}}{i}+{c}_{{{2}}}{j}\)).

let \(\displaystyle{u}={\left[{2},-{1},-{4}\right]},{v}={\left[{0},{0},{0}\right]}\), and \(\displaystyle{w}={\left[-{6},-{9},{8}\right]}\). we want to determine by inspection (with minimal compulation) if \(\displaystyle{\left\lbrace{u},{v},{w}\right\rbrace}\) is linearly dependent or independent. choose the best answer:
A. The set is linearly dependent because one of the vectors is a scalar multiple of another vector.
B. The set is linearly independent because we only have two vectors and they are not scalar multiples of each other.
C. The set is linearly dependent because the number of vectors in the set is greater than the dimension of the vector space.
D. The set is linearly dependent because two of the vectors are the same.
E. The set is linearly dependent because one of the vectors is the zero vector.
F. We cannot easily tell if the set is linearly dependent or linearly independent.
