W is in Span(S) iff w is a linear combination of `v_1 v_2 v_3`

iff there exists a,b,c such that `w=av_1+bv_2+cv_3`

iff considering the coordinates,

`3=3a+b+2c `

`4a+0b+6c=1 `

`7a+3b+3c=1`

iff

`b=3-3a-2c `

`4a+6c=1 `

`7a+3(3-3a-2c)+3c=1`

iff

`b=3-3a-2c `

`4a+6c=1 `

`7a+9-9a-6c+3c=1`

iff

`b=3-3a-2c `

`4a+6c=1 `

`2a+3c=8 lt=gt 4a+6c=16` (multiply the inequality by 2)

There are not such solution since 4a+6c can't be at the same time equal to 1 and 16

**Therefore w doesn't belong to** `span(v_1,v_2,v_3)`
