Quizz vector spaces --- Introduction ---

This module contains 11 training exercises on basic notions of vector spaces.

Students may use them as a training tool for a better memorization of the lesson, while teachers may put them into a work sheet with activated time limit, so that proficiency can be tested.

Two subsets

Let be a vector space. We have two subsets of , and , having respectively and elements. Answer:

Def dependence

Fill in:

Def generation

Fill in:


Let be a vector space, a non-empty subset.

Dimension and elements


Let be a vector space, a finite subset that . If , .

Dim subspace by system

Let E be a sub-vector space of R defined by a homogeneous linear system. This system is composed of equations, and the rank of the coefficient matrix of this system is equal to . What is the dimension of E?

Generated subspace

Let be a vector subspace of generated by a subset of elements. What can be said of the dimension of ?

dim( ) is equal to .


Let be a vector space, , two distinct finite subsets with .
