Sep 17, 2022 · The last sentence of this theorem is useful as it allows us to use the reduced row-echelon form of a matrix to determine if a set of vectors is linearly independent. Let the vectors be columns of a matrix \(A\). Find the reduced row-echelon form of \(A\). If each column has a leading one, then it follows that the vectors are linearly independent.
