For any two vectors vector v, vector w in R^n.

Assume that vector v and vector w are parallel. Show that they are linearly dependent using the definitions of (a).

### 1 Answer | Add Yours

Vectors V and W are parallel ,it means either angle between them is zero degree or 180 degree.

`V=+-lambdaW`

`V+-lambdaW=0`

`lambda!=0`

`` which means vectors V and W are linearly dependent
