Please can you help me as I have just been introduced to your Help Forum:
Determine whether the vectors u, v and w given below are linearly independent or dependent where u, v and w are noncolliner vectors such that
u=2a3b+c , v=3a5b+2c and w=4a5b+c.
thanks.
Use exactly the same method I just showed "Babanla"

set them as a matrix 3x3 then find the determinant if it is 0 then they are dependant
