Advanced Mathematics - Linear dependence and independence
Linear dependence and independence
For two vectors to be linearly dependent,  they must be parallel. If
they are dependent, one must be equal to a multiple of the other.
For three or more vectors: if a set of vectors is linearly dependent, then
one vector can be expressed in terms of the other vectors.
If two non-zero vectors are not parallel, they must be linearly
For three or more vectors to be linearly independent, one of the vectors
cannot be expressed as a linear combination of the other vectors.
