Let X represent either a space C[1,1] or Lα,βp(w), 1p<, of functions on [1,1]. It is well known that X are Banach spaces under the sup and the p-norms, respectively. We prove that there exist the best possible normalized Banach subspaces Xα,βk of X such that the system of Jacobi polynomials is densely spread on these, or, in other words, each fXα,βk can be represented by a linear combination of Jacobi polynomials to any degree of accuracy. Explicit representation for fXα,βk has been given.
