Let V be a K -Vectorspace, and let B 1 , B 2 , . . . be subsets of V such that B 1 B 2 . . . and for all i N { 0 } is B i = V. Prove or disprove that i N B i = V. The hint from our professor was that this is not true. Let's choose B k such that it is a subset of all other B i and also the smallest set. So every vector of B k is also in every other B i . Therefore, the intersection of all B i would be B k and we know that B k = V which would make the statement true. Where am I wrong? Any solution or hint would be highly appreciated.

Nobody said that we have only finitely many B i 's. Suppose that V = K and that
B n = { x K | x | < 1 n } .
Then ( n N ) : B n = K . However, n N B n = { 0 }, and so
n N B n = { 0 } .

I came across a problem while proving a very simple statement.
We have three vectors T = { v 1 , v 2 , v 3 } , and the set of their sums S = { v 1 + v 2 , v 1 + v 3 , v 2 + v 3 } for v i V, for V any vector space. I have to prove that for rational coefficients a , b , c Q , the following statement is true:
T linearly independent S linearly independent
was quite easy and I had no problem calculating it.
However, is where I faced the problem and I would appreciate any help and besides that, does is true for real coefficients.

How to determine the value of x such that the parallelogram has a given area?
Determine the value(s) of x such that the area of the parallelogram formed by the vectors a = ( x + 1 , 1 , 2 ) and b = ( x , 3 , 0 ) is 41
My work (using cross product)
| a × b | = ( ( 1 ) ( 0 ) ( 2 ) ( 3 ) , ( 2 ) ( x ) ( x + 1 ) ( 0 ) , ( x + 1 ) ( 3 ) ( 1 ) ( x ) ) | a × b | = ( 6 , 2 x , 3 x + 3 x ) | a × b | = ( 6 , 2 x , 2 x + 3 ) 41 = ( 6 , 2 x , 2 x + 3 )

How to determine the span of two vectors in R 2
(4,2) and (1,3)
Do I subtract them? I don't how I'd solve this. Thanks in advance. In my question the vectors are like this:
[ 4 2 ]
But that doesn't matter, right?
Would the vector equation x 1 v 1 + x 2 v 2 = b be consistent for any b in R 2 ?
