Recall that at the beginning of the previous chapter, we were interested in the following problem: Given a field extension K/F, how does one measure how big K is relative to F? In fact, the whole chapter on vector spaces was introduced primarily to solve this problem. With the material on vector spaces under our belt, we can now give our answer.
