Let $q,q':\mathbb V \longrightarrow \mathbb R$ be two quadratic forms, where $\mathbb V$ is vector space with $\dim \mathbb V \geq3$ and $q(x)+q'(x)>0$ for any $0\neq x\in \mathbb V$. Then there exists a basis for $\mathbb V$ such that is orthogonal relative both $q$ and $q'$.
I have not any idea how to deal with it. Any suggestions ? Thanks.
