16.1 Show that $e^{2x}$, sin(2x) are linearly independent on $(-\infty,+\infty)$

that was the example but....

\begin{align*}
w(e^x,\cos x)&=\left|\begin{array}{rr}e^x&\cos{x} \\ e^x&-\cos{x} \\ \end{array}\right|\\
&=??\\
&=??
\end{align*}

$$=e^x(-\cos(x)-\cos(x))=-2e^x\cos(x)\dots$$

But don't you need to calculate $w\left(e^{2x},\cos(2x)\right)?$ What do you get for that?

\end{align*}
\(\displaystyle w(e^x,\cos{x}) = \begin{vmatrix}
e^x & \cos{x}\\
e^x & -\sin{x}
\end{vmatrix} = -e^x(\sin{x}+\cos{x})\)
