Math 235Sample Midterm 21.Short Answer Problemsa) SupposeL:VWis a linear mapping, whereVis a vector space with a basisB={~v1, . . . ,~vn}andWis a vector space with a basisC={~w1, . . . , ~wm}. DefineC[L]B, thematrix ofLwith respect to basesBandC.
b) LetB={~v1, . . . ,~vn}be orthonormal in an inner product spaceVand let~vVsuch that~v=a1~v1+· · ·+an~vn. Prove thatai=h~v,~vii.
