Update Won't include the trig as rather lengthy, but included as visual complement to give genreal idea: Note that a shutter on a traditional camera works on this same principal: Note also that Narasimham's observation of the paths taken offer visual proof of the conjecture, and for gre...

ok,ok

If we want to see if a set of vectors spans a vector space $V$, then lets say the set $A$ spans a vector space $V$. If every linear combination of $A$ produces $V$, then $\text{Span}(A) = V$ Edit: if we forme the coeficient matrix of the system formed by $c_1s_1+..+c_ns_n =u$ where $s_i$ are the...
