9) ai , x ≤ 0 for i = 1, 2, . . , m, c, x > 0, x ∈ E. Proof. 9) has no solution. 8) has a solution by using induction on the number of elements m. The result is clear for m = 0. Suppose then that the result holds in any Euclidean space and for any set of m − 1 elements and any element c. Deﬁne a0 = −c. 9) shows there are scalars i λ0 , λ1 , . . , λm ≥ 0 in R, not all zero, satisfying λ0 c = m 1 λi a . If λ0 > 0 the proof is complete, so suppose λ0 = 0 and without loss of generality λm > 0.
