## Theorem

This page has been identified as a candidate for refactoring of basic complexity.In particular: These are effectively the same theorem. the only thing different is the techniques to prove them.Until this has been finished, please leave
`{{Refactor}}` in the code.
Because of the underlying complexity of the work needed, it is recommended that you do not embark on a refactoring task until you have become familiar with the structural nature of pages of $\mathsf{Pr} \infty \mathsf{fWiki}$.To discuss this page in more detail, feel free to use the talk page.When this work has been completed, you may remove this instance of `{{Refactor}}` from the code. |

### Finite Dimensional Case

Let $E$ be a vector space of $n$ dimensions.

Let $H$ be a linearly independent subset of $E$.

There exists a basis $B$ for $E$ such that $H \subseteq B$.

### Infinite Dimensional Case

Let $K$ be a field.

Let $E$ be a vector space over $K$.

Let $H$ be a linearly independent subset of $E$.

There exists a basis $B$ for $E$ such that $H \subseteq B$.
