(a) S can be extended to an orthonormal basis $\{v\_1,\; v\_2,\; ...,v\_k,v\_\{k+1\},...,v\_n\}$ for V.

(b) If W=span(S), then $S\_1=\{v\_\{k+1\},v\_\{k+2\},...,v\_n\}$ is an orhtonormal basis for W

(c) If W is any subspace of V, then dim(V)=dim(W)+dim(W

Lemma 1. let A ∈ M_{m×n}(F), $x$∈F^{n}, and $y$∈F^{m}. Then

- $langle\; Ax,\; yrangle\; \_m\; =langle\; x,\; A*yrangle\; \_n$

Lemma 2. Let A ∈ M_{m×n}(F). Then rank(A*A)=rank(A).

Corollary.(of lemma 2) If A is an m×n matrix such that rank(A)=n, then A*A is invertible.

(a) There existes exactly one minimal solution $s$ of $Ax=b$, and $s$∈R(L

(b) Ther vector $s$ is the only solutin to $Ax=b$ that lies in R(L
