    Linear dependence question

    Let f_1(x) = \sin x,~ f_2(x) = \cos(x + \frac{\pi}{6}), and~ f_3(x) = \sin(x - \frac{\pi}{4}) for 0 <= x <= 2\pi. Show that { f_1, f_2, f_3 } is linearly dependent by finding constants c and k such that cf_1 - 2f_2 - kf_3 = 0 . what is c and k?

    Linear dependency and independence

    Can this be explained by use of one solution, no solution or infinitely many solutions? If not, just summarize it for me the way you understand it. Sent from my SM-G955W using Tapatalk

    error: linear inequality (absolute function)

    hello, I tried to solve the following inequality: abs(-2x+1)>2/3x+1 but get wrong results: -2x+1>-2/3x-1 I add 1 then +2x then multiply with 3 and divide by 4 I get: x<3/2 and -2x+1>2/3x+1 cancel out 1 then +2x 0>8/3x so I get x<0 surely this inequality is true for some x>0 - do...

    Converting formula to linear relationship

    I am struggling with converting formulae to the linear form Y = mX +C For example if I have the relationship ay=b^x and I need to express this in linear form using logs, I get: logy+ loga = xlogb not sure how to get this to the form Y=mX+C because if I move the loga onto the other side I...

    FLT from a system of infinite linear equations

    FLT from a system of infinite linear equations As told from the Power properties they can be written as Sum: $$A^n= \sum_{x=1}^{A} M_n$$ $$B^n= \sum_{x=1}^{B} M_n$$ $$C^n= \sum_{x=1}^{C} M_n$$ Where: $$M_n=[x^n-(x-1)^n]$$ Than FLT state: $$C^n=A^n+B^n$$ Can be rewritten...

    Should span be a finite linear combination only?

    Wiki says infinite linear combination should be excluded off of the definition of span. So should we answer "Yes" to the following question appearing in UC Davis notes?:

    What is line vector?

    I am reading a book on vector analysis, but the statement defining "line vector" confuses me because I can't catch the author's English, especially "forms a part". Following is a screenshot of this definition of line vector in the text, highlighted by a red line. Could you please tell me what a...
