Notice that
m = 1 k x m v m = u
has only one solution. This would imply the set of vectors { v 1 , , v k } are linearly independent. Otherwise one can write one vector vi as linear combination of other vectors and there will be more than one solution (you may try to write out the other solutions explicitly to verify the above argument).

Hint: Try to prove that if the vectors { v 1 , , v k } are linearly dependent then
m = 1 k x m v m = u
has either no solution or more than one solutions for every u in V . The above is just the contrapositive argument.

If I use the rule of vector triple product, it becomes:
b × a × b = a ( | b | 2 ) b ( b a )
which is generally non-zero, but suppose I use properties of cross product:
a × b = b × a
Hence,
b × a × b = a × b × b = a × ( b × b ) = 0
What did I do wrong?

I have the vector c that is:
c = i = 1 n m i r i i = 1 n m i
where r i is a vector and m i is a scalar
I need to proof the folowwing equality for any vector r
i = 1 n m i | r r i | 2 = i = 1 n m 1 | r i c | 2 + m | r c | 2
and i known that m = i = 1 n m i
I try to replace the vector c in the equality but but i get confused with the vector algebra.
