110.201 Quiz 3 Solutions: Friday March 28, 2005 Problem 1 1. Yes, the map is linear. It is not an isomorphism; its kernel contains, for example, f ( x ) = x , which means the map is not one-to-one 2. The map is linear; this much is obvious. It is also clearly injective, and since an injective linear map T : U V between linear spaces of the same finite dimension is an isomorphism, the map is an isomorphism. 3. The map is not linear. T ( kA ) = k 2 T ( A ) for all real k . Problem 2 1. There are several ways to solve this problem. One is the following: Let B 2 = { x 4 , 2 x 3 - 1 , 1 - x 2 , 3 x - 1 , 2 x } ≡ { f 1 ,f 2 ,f 3 ,f 4 ,f 5 } . Observe that 1 = (3 / 2) f 5 - f 4 (1) x = f 5 / 2 (2) x 2 = (3 / 2) f 5 - f 4 - f 3 (3) x 3 = f 2 / 2 (4) x 4 = f 1 (5) Therefore span { f 1 ,f 2 ,...,f 5 } = span { 1 ,x,x 2 ,x 3 ,x 4 } = P 4 . It follows immediately that the f i are a basis of P 4 , since there are only five of them and dim P 4 = 5. The change-of-basis matrix from B 1 to B 2 can
