Problem 3. (Exercise 4 in the lecture on 6.23) Let F be a field and Fm[r] be the set ofpolynomials with coefficients in F whose degree is less than m. Show that Fm[x], equippedwith the usual addition and scalar multiplication, is a vector space over F. In the lecture on6.23, we will show that F[r], the set of polynomials of arbitrary degrees with coefficients in F,is a vector space. So you only need to show that Fm[r] is a subspace of F[r] for any positiveinteger m.
