If αx = y and x, y ∈ R^2, then

α =y/x

Explain why this is false

My immediate reply to this would be pretty simple.

Since x and y belong to R^2,a vector space,x can very well take the value 0.

In the particular case x =(0,0), the value of a = y/x won't hold.

a = y/x will hold if x is not equal to (0,0).
